Buying a Camera?

I need a new camera and don't want one with a lot of bells and whistles as I am not very good in this area.

I just got into taking pictures and ask same question. Since I'm not a computer thinking kind of person, seeing that from sewing machines to cameras it all seems like little computers to me.

I ended up getting a Fugi. Love it, it has the point and shoot method, as you get better you can adjust the settings to flowers, portraits, ocean shots even darkness levels. Before you learn all of that,it has an auto setting,a brain of its own. I was amazed! Great pictures every time because of the no shaking or red eyes that it has set in it. If you can point and press the button, you'll be fine.

Once I learned how to be comfortable with the small one I went up to a 18x zoom. For just taking regular pictures of family, memories, etc. Start out with a simple point and shoot style camera. They cost around 100.00 for a good one with a year warranty (I recommend).

When I ask about buying a camera everyone told me since I didn't know what to look for not to buy off E bay, used or without original instruction manual. I found that useful, since I always try to save money. In this case you want to get the most for you buck.One that lasts,does the job and you can if you want grow into.

What I love now is you can just take pictures. If you do not want the hard copies it cost you nothing after you find one you like. Now this is from a new photographer who is enjoying learning something I never grow tired of. Good luck and have fun!

If you just want some pictures and aren't worried about bells and whistles why not get a Polaroid? You load it with film, point, shoot and wait for the picture to develope. Couldn't be easier.

Fair warning though, the film doesn't have a shelf life once it is opened so try to use them up within a month or two. Sealed film, I am told, will last 8 or 9 months.
