Does anyone have a recommendation for a camera that works?

I have had every Canon made, threw them all out, none of the shutters would open after a while, and a couple wouldn’t right out of the box…:twisted:

I have a couple of junk Kodaks that take junk photos but keep working.

Any recommendations for a camera in a decent price range which is dependable and takes good macro’s

What price range are you looking at?

My husband is a pro photographer. He has been a big help as far as cameras go. After going thru a few cameras, I got the Olympus C-5060. It takes exceptional macro shots. Pros: camera is small, rechargable batteries, excellent quality, decent zoom, great macro. Cons: the cost. $600+ (new 3 years ago)

My husband uses the Nikon D200’s, awesome camera system. awful price.

Hi Cheryl,

That is out of my price range, I have a tendency to abuse them a little.

I’m looking for a rather inexpensive one that also takes decent pictures, a couple hundred or less.

Sony Cybershot. 179.00

You’ll really love it in the dark places like attics and crawl spaces with it’s little aiming light beam. Don’t have to hold a flashlight to make sure you get your pic. Just point and shoot.

Takes a dropping and keeps on going. I think I dropped mine about 7 or 8 times including on the concrete driveway. Still working.

But, now I’ve got a neck lanyard that I hook it to so I don’t drop it anymore.

Good old Kodak. three years old. Dropped. Kicked. Rained on. Snowed on. 28,000 pictures later and the damned thing will not die!

I have an Olympus D-510.

2.1 megapiels which is fine for HI work. Takes nice pictures and can be operated with one hand.

Been dropped, rained on, bounce tested. (Although, I confess, I DID replace the outer case once after an 8 foot drop off a ladder on to concrete! It still worked, but the battery case was broken.)

You can pick one up on Ebay for under $50.00.

I’ve had excellent results with the Fuji FinePix series. I have the A345 now (about $140). It has been dropped, kicked and even rolled over on (while in a crawlspace) and it works great. I usually go through one camera a year.

Not really Bruce, but you can generally buy a wide angle lens for some cameras from the manufacturer.


Where did you find that price?

179 is a great price. The Cyber-shot DSC-W70 sells for about $289.00 We have one that we use for travel, it slips nicely into a packpack or back pocket, and we dont worry about using it in high crime areas, its not as ‘flashy’ as others. Doesnt take great macro shots, but its 7 megapixels, you can crop it down.
