Joey, what kind of compact digital camera camera do you recommend? I don't want any kind of camera where you have to change the lens (I want some camera I can put in my pocket), those things get expensive and I take pictures, just to take. Anyway, what do you recommend? And is more megapixels better? Oh and what company is best. Sony or Cannon or even Nikon?

hmm i would recommend the canon g9, check it out, prices should be going down for it since the release of the canon g10

nikon makes good advanced point&shoot cameras..personally i would stay away from olympus and kodak cameras

here's two i took today at the beach

:crazy: i wanna go there now!

That class is going excellent. Got one of the highest grades in the class. :) The teacher keeps asking for my work to be displayed in the class lol. Out of the last 6 projects I've done, he's got 3 or 4 displayed.

We're working on negative-positive stuff and putting it together to make a weird crazy project. Mine came out WEIRD AS HELL. Looking at it just makes me dizzy :( but the teacher loved it for some reason. weirdo. Also worked on darkroom sets...ermm what else...forgot. LOL

Gotta start on the drymounting project tomorrow which id ont understand whatsoever...

depends on what you are looking to take photos of, if just general photo taking any point&shoot will do. nikon and canon make good ones

Joey, these are fantastic!
Most of my shots are sports related -- but I want to start expanding. What kind of lens do you usually use for your outdoor shots (like the beach photos)?

you should check out the Canon G9 or the new G10. they are "advanced" point & shoot cameras. keeps the compact shape of a p&s while giving you the manual options of a digital SLR. I really would get one but with the equipment I have there's really no use.

Thanks :)
usually for landscapes I use a Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 lens. Ultra Wide Angles are fun to shoot and the one Sigma offers is pretty afordable. I also have a Canon 17-40 f/4L which is a pretty good general use lens
