2.5 to 3 inch back screen
i like the ones with the back screens that are nice and big
i def want to be able to take video
and i want it to take good pictures
my price range is 250 to 300ish, but if cheaper, i still wont be mad :)
any suggestions??
here are a couple i was looking at





Samsung NV3
NV3_02.jpg



Functioning as a high resolution 7.2 mega-pixel digital camera, the NV3 is both a luxurious and practical multimedia device sure to attract the next generation of digital photographers. Encased in a thin 17.5mm metal body, it also acts as an MP3 player using a special audio processing chip delivering 3D, Jazz, Rock, and other sound effects. Listen to the music via the built-in stereo speakers or included headphones. The NV3 includes a Portable Multimedia Player (PMP) to watch downloaded movies. The NV3 also doubles as a digital camcorder with MPEG-4 TVD (720x480) 20fps & VGA (640x480) 30fps, Auto Gain Control (AGC) technology minimizes zoom noise during video recording. A text viewer allows the user to read text on the LCD, or to use as an e-book, whilst the multi-tasking ability enables you to listen to music while taking pictures.
DSCW90.jpg



The DSC-W90 combines the power of 8.1 megapixel resolution and the precision of a Carl Zeiss® 3X optical zoom lens with powerful, advanced features. Face Detection makes skin tones appear more natural, D-range optimization provides greater detail in highlights and shadows and in-camera retouching and red-eye reduction quickly improves shots you’ve already taken. And the Double Anti-Blur Solution lets you snap beautiful, clear photos in low light without flash to preserve the mood. For simple sharing with family and friends, HD (high definition) output makes photos look spectacular on compatible HDTV screens. The Cyber-shot DSC-W90 is available in silver and black

HP photosmart r927


i love it. huge display, goood battery life and its got a huge display. only drawback is that the preview of the pictures are blurry (horrible pic qual) as shit. but when you upload to the comp they are crisp and beautiful. and it doesnt have a manual viewfinder.

ugh HP digicams are horrible, interpolation ftl

each to their own, they should stick to what they do best and let Nikon, Canon and others take the digicam market to the next level. HP uses very cheap and shitty lenses, most of them suffer from horrible chromatic aberrations :hs:

i dont know what interpolation is, i just want it to take nice crisp pictures and decent video lol
i like the look of the HP, and its pretty similar looking to the cybershot, but the cybershot doesnt do movies from what i can tell :/
i like the Canon PowerShot SD800 IS
but the other ones are a little bulky for me
im going to look more at the HP and the powershot
thanks for the suggestions so far, any more are def welcome, i wont be buying this for a couple weeks, so i have time lol

Canons have the best colour and no Sony cameras. Shitty proprietary memory.
