What is the best digital camera to have?

I am in the market for a new digital camera. I want one that has an awesome zoom and very clear pics.

  • If you can afford it, I would suggest a Nikon digital SLR. The pictures are amazingly clear, and it catches every little detail. I have a D40, which is an older model, but I have such great shots that I would have missed with a point and shoot. A few years ago, my kids were playing in a kiddie pool, and I got the neatest shots with the water splash droplets in mid air, clear, perfect detail.

  • Cannon is better than NIkon hands down. You should get the Cannon DSLR, takes 3.5 pics per shot, zoom is awesome, and most of all it auto adjust for you to get the best pic/clear pic. A friend of mine is a professional photographer and only uses cannon. I use photoshop to edit my own photos.

  • I like Nikon's Cool Pix. Which model you get would depend on your price range. I have the L22 and am very happy with it.

  • Nikon definitely. My uncle in law has one and it takes the most amazing pictures i've ever seen. when i use my camera at the aquarium, the tanks in the background are dark and you can barely see anything in the tank. his does just the opposite, accents and highlights everything inside the tank and everything else in the picture. it takes absolutely beautiful pictures!

    i currently have a samsung, i am not crazy about it. i once had a pink olympus i loved! but nothing beats those nikon pics
