wanting a digital camera

what's a good digital camera to get for $200 or less. I don't care if it's a little more than that, but around there. I want the LCD screen... preferred movies, sound, that sort of thing. Needs to take very good pictures.... other than that...... that's about it, maybe hold a good 30 photos or somethin'. Please help me, as with most things, I'm a n00b.

nikon coolpix 5600: $250 at best buy, 5.1 megapixels, movies w/ sound. it can only hold 10 pictures on high quality but SD cards aren't expensive.

and if you buy a camera you don't need a card reader, just plug it into the computer with the usb cord that comes with it.

yeah, I saw some pics your's took, and I like them a lot. Plus, the camera looks good. Can I find it cheaper than $250 though? And how "inexpensive" are those SD cards? And where do I get them?

you can get the 4 megapixel nikon coolpix 4600 that does NOT record sound for $200

i got a 256mb (holds 200 high quality pictures) sd card from best buy for $45 and a 512mb (400 high quality pictures) card from office max for $35. it just depends on where you find it.

no Jimmy, I'm tired of not having one... I'm makin' some money now.... and I want a camera. I like the pics it takes... it has sound, and 'video'. I can get some nice extra memory for not much. It's a good choice, and now, I own it.

it was an attempt at being humorus, but maybe that's just the factory sense of humor that's rubbed off on me.

yeah, I know that's true, but I don't need to take 'advanced' photos yet. As far as the thing in the sig, it was meant to be a joke, like 8 weeks ago, but no one got it, or said anything.

good to know, I'll probably get the 256 mb, but we'll see
is Premium an ok brand, they have a 512 mb for $29.99
Lexan is a 256 mb for $29.99
Premium ok? That might work out ok.

from my research all of these brands are very good cameras

canon, nikon, olympis, and sony is pretty good also, people forget that they've been doing the digi cam thing the longest. I remember holding a 550 dollar 1.0 megapixel sony that used floppy's for media back in college and people being like, whoa is that an electronic camera?!?

personally I think the next one i'll buy will be a nikon, but i'd take any brand that offered enough for cheapest out of those listed I MIGHT even consider fugifilm, but it would have to be a killer deal, cause im not that impressed with their picture quality, and do not whatever you do, buy a kodak, they may have one of the best conventional film camera's around, but that means dick about their digi cam's

for example, my sig picture was took with a kodak, thats why it looks like ***.
