  • You will never find another camera today that takes as great a picture as the Kodak Easy Share. Believe me, I've tried them all from & sent them all back. I went on eBay & bought a used Easy Share. I LOVE it!

  • My husband recently bought a Canon T3i digital SLR. I got his old Digital Rebel. They LOOK like 35mm cameras, but are all digital. My old Canon PowerShot A520 will be going to my kids for a camera for them to share. Can you tell we're a Canon family?

    I did a search for you. Search Cirteria: Digital Camera, Point & Shoot, Fun & Easy. I don't know what the current generation of my old one is. I highly recommend Canon though, they're pretty user-firendly and the controls and stuff are easy to figure out.

  • Well, I have a Nikon D3100 that I am absolutely in love with - I'd marry it if that were legal. lol But it is a DSLR, and has lots of options so it might be confusing for someone who isn't used to that.

    Before, I had a Kodak Easy Share, and I would definitely recommend them. They are easy to understand and use, take excellent pictures, and if I remember correctly, aren't all that expensive either.

  • We haven't had a camera in a while. We just use our iPhones, mostly for ease of not having to take an extra item with us.

    The older kids both have Nikon Cool pix cameras and they are good little point and shoots.

    DH and I were looking at Cannon DSLRs and he really liked them. He was a photographer at one point in his career. He said for print film he'd take a Nikon over a Cannon any day. For digital he said it's the other way around always the Cannon, for the DSLR.

    Just stay away from the Fuji. He bought one, mostly due to price and it died within a week. Took it back and it was ok, but it died of the exact same problem within a year, which is when we decided to just do the iPhones.
