I would like your opinions on what is a real good digital camera that is not real expensive.  I would like to upgrade in the future and was wanting some suggestions.  I want to really get into photography but cannot afford to go crazy at this time.

My first digital was a sony cyber shot, the one I have is only 4.1 mega-pixels. You can get one with better rez now cheap. I still pull mine out and use it some times for quick shots, I have really loved it. I have a nikon D200 now and it's totally awesome, I still haven't learned everything about it yet, there are so many different configurations. Here is a pic my daughter took with the sony, she is entering it in her 4-H photo contest tomorrow, and it printed great as an 8x10.

I have a Kodak EasyShare 5.0MP now.  It takes pretty good pics outside.  I hate the delay it has after the flash before the photo is snapped.  It always catches my son with his eyes closed or half closed.  I have not yet tried to enlarge any on a professional printer so I don't know how it'll come out.  I am so far behind on photos.  I take them but they sit on my computer.  I keep thinking he'll be graduated before I get started.  I haven't even started his scrapbook yet and he is 15 months old.  Thanks for the information and if you have any other tips...let me know.

I have a Samsung Digimax A7 and I am having alot of problems with it, I would not recomend a Samsung! My dad and sister both have Kodak Easyshares and I don't care for them much either But mine is a 7 mega pix so the quality is alot better than their Kodaks which are 5 mega pix. I've been looking into the Canon Powershot 8 mega pix for myself but have not purchased yet. One of my sisters is looking into a Casio that seemed really nice. Good luck on your search!

Its pricey though...just under $700.00 at walmart with one lens.

It was my birthday/xmas gift from hubby since he got a nice bonus from work this year!

Before this one I hada Fulji film S3100..it works great....I just wanted something more

I'm a portrait photographer and I started out with a Sony DSC-H2.  It has 6 MP and takes some great shots!  With a 1GB memory card and everything, it was around $500.00.  I currently use a Canon Digital Rebel Xti for all my pro work.  It has 10.1 MP but the body and one lens cost over $1100.
