Well? Which digital camera do you have/use?
Kodak DC 4800 3.1 MP...probably will retire in a few months to be replaced with a Nikon CoolPix 5700 5MP...
The marigold in the center is slightly out of focus (I was a tad too close - the cut-off one in the bottom is much sharper - best way to test out a digital camera is by its macro lense), but the colors and textures are dead on accurate.
My mom just got a Nikon Coolpix 5700 also, and she seems to like it alot. I honestly don't know much about digital cameras, but I have used it a little, seems nice.
Fujifilm Finepix 2800Zoom.
THe most important factor to me? SIZE SIZE SIZE
Canon Elph S200
....and I love it!
The Nikon Coolpix 4500. Indeed they're certainly learning it now and the 5700 must even be better.
It takes a good photo but I'm still looking for something "purer", I probably won't find that in digital unless I spend way more money than I want to.
Here are a couple of (downsized) samples
(distortion in the sky is due to my polarizer reacting w/ the tint of my office's window, not a camera defect)
FujiFilm MX1300.. nothing fancy, simple point-and-shoot... 1.3MP is good enough
Canon S200. I love the size and it takes pretty decent shots.
Also a Kodak DC4800 owner. But I don't see any reason to upgrade....
Olympus E-20, Nikon m100 and d5, canon s30 and sony dcs750.
Just yesterday we bought the Canon PowerShot S45. Excellent digital camera.
Canon Power Shot S10 and I love it!
Canon PowerShot S40. I love it! I had an Olympus Z3030, and didn't like it. It was a pain to use. The S45 that Haris just bought is an updated version of my camera.
2 Canon Powershot G2 4 megapixel (I love these cameras)
1 Canon A30 1.3 megapixel
1 Kodak (sorry can't remember the model number but it's a 1.3 megapixel camera)
The next one will probably be the Canon Powershot S200 (becasue of the size) The G2's are just too big to carry on vacation.
For anyone looking to buy, just keep in mind that you not only have to look at image quality on the computer screen, but also how it looks when printed out. There's definitely discrepancies between the two with some cameras.
Nikon Coolpix 950
Canon Powershot G3 here, with Canon 420EX flash.
With that excellent flash, no redeye, and much more natural shots as you can bounce the flash off the ceiling or wall. Throw in an index card to highlight the faces...
Very versatile camera because of the flash hotshoe and bayonet mount
How a picture prints out is very much dependent on if your monitor and printer are calibrated or not. If you don't calibrate, what you see on the monitor and what you get in print will always be different, regardless of camera used! Printers do not have nearly the gamut of a computer monitor, but on the other hand some of the new photo-printers exceed the monitor gamut in some color ranges (such as green).
If you open a picture in photoshop, be sure you have selected the correct working color space. Usually cameras embed SRGB into the picture information, so that should be your Photoshop working space.
i have the Kodak DX4900, takes great shots, ive taken 2000+ pictures with it, and never fails. decent battery life too. in total, ive had 3 Kodaks, starting with the Kodak DC210+, and then to the Kodak DC3400. in all, ive taken over 6000 pictures. i have a few of them on my website, cjr89.tripod.com and a couple of them have been fooled with photoshop, i hope you can tell which ones. the prints look amazing as well.
