For christmas this year I received my first digital Camera. It is the HP Photosmart M305 (3.2mp /3x optical zoom/ 1.8 LCD. Unfortunately I hate when others buy me electronic equipment LOL. Now whenever I talk to anyone, or seek info on forums, I am told that this camera is "bad", poor performing etc. (I STILL haven't opened it). The price was 149.00. I am willing to add to this to "upgrade" should I need to. I was steered via reading and discussions to either Canons ( A85), Nikon (Coolpix 4100), or upward to the Sony Cybershot DSC-W1 Digital Camera. Now with NO knowledge I am VERRY confused. These are within my price range of willing to add about 100.00 or so. The product was purchased at Staples so I need them to carry whatever I select. Any ideas, or info for a "Digital Virgin". Should I stay or should I go....With an upgrade? Thanks.
