    I'm planning a trip to Cuba or Dominican in 1 month... i don't have a Digital Camera and would like to take pictures when i get there... i also don't have much money to spend so I'm curious what everything who knows a decent amount of info can tell me if this camera here is worth getting. I don't know anything about cameras so i don't know how many pics i can fit or what kind of extra memory to get for and how much memory to get..... i will obviously take a lot of pics.... 300-400 depends but you know. Any advice from either Best Buy canada or Futureshop canada websites on cameras. But rember i have a low budget like FREE---> maybe $200

    But what do you think of this camera here?

    If there is any way at all to get this in Canada do so, it is an older model and 6MP, but it has a 10x optical zoom all your other cameras have 3-4x digital zoom. You will also need a high speed card with a high data capacity as this will do bursts of 2-3 shots per second. We bought this right before we went to vacation in Sedona, AZ, the pictures are outright beautiful.

    Sorry forgot the link

    I didn't say a kodac was good. On the contrary, I think they are junk. I don't like it at all. I went last night and bought the wife a Cannon EOS SLR, Rebel XTi, 10.1 megapixel. It was around 1300.00 with everything we got with it .. It is a great cmera, I like it a lot better .....
