I just read this afternoon that the average buyer spends 12 hours doing research before buying a new camera. I think I'd have to disagree with that. I think I've spent more time than that and I'm not even ready to make the purchase. I love my little Kodak Easy Share C533. I bought it when I was doing a lot on Ebay. It takes great close ups. Other shots aren't too bad. But after Brent let me use his $1700 camera in Carmel I realized what else I could be doing! I was amazed how far his Canon could zoom with the added lens. And how clear everything was. I told him he shouldn't have let me use it!

I've been playing with this new website today - BestInClass.com. You enter the characteristics of the camera you want in the left side bar and it will give you cameras that fit. You can choose the brand you want - Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, or Sony. Most of the people I've asked have a Canon. Here's the Canon digital camera recommendations. Anyone else want to add their suggestions?
I thought it was cute that I could even search for pink cameras! You can ask for cameras that fit in your jacket pocket or pants pocket. (I thought about Grandpa's little camera when I read this.) You can also enter other features that you want and what you're going to use it for.
I can get a much better camera now than what I paid for mine several years ago. Actually, both my daughters have "better" cameras than me now and I paid less for both of them. :-( Well, it still looks like the camera I really want is still out of my price range. Gotta pay for a wedding first. lol...
