Yea, most of the pics in my gallery are off my digital camcorder. They are dang near full size as you see them there, and as you can tell the quality sucks. They come out to 640x480 pixels full size, that's......poopy. Get a camera for pictures, get the camcorder for video/video clips.

You will not regret it Once you have had the joy of shooting with an SLR, you will never want to use anything else.

That is a great price!

However, make sure that is the "kit" that includes the lense. It can be purchased as just the body, or the body with lense "kit".

The lens that comes in the kit is pretty good, but only like 50 mm. You will probably end up wanting to buy a telephoto zoom lense, I strongly recommend the Tamron 70-300mm. You can get it for around 200. Start with the 50 lense that comes in the kit, and see if you need more first though.

The reason Digital Video pics are bad, is because there are 5 frames of video per frame. When you snag a pic out of there you only get one of the five. Basically one fifth of the image data.

Kodak brand cameras have the fastest shutter delay of any "low end" cameras. I researched the crap out of this when I bought mine. Most camras with 3 mp or less have almost a whole second delay. Kodak has 3/10ths of a second on the low end models.

I use a Nikon Coolpix 2100. I have found a way to get away from the slow shutter speed. What you do is the button you push down to take the shot you just ease it in about 1/2 way,on mine a green light will come on...you then hold it 1/2 way in and when you are taking action shots and want to take a picture push it the rest of the way down and it instantly takes it. Well I say I found the way but I guess I have to give my dad the credit..LOL. Give that a try guys..Psyklone it might work on your Nikon.

That is a trick a friend told me about. I am between a really good used with extra lenses and printer or the Canon Rebel Digital.
I'll do a little more research. I thank everyone for the input.

Actually, on most digital cameras the half push is used to identify the "target" of the shot and set the autofocus to it. For example, the digital rebel has 6 or 7 autofocus points, and each time you push the button down halfway it will go through the different af points.
