    My picture taking digital camera at first worked good, then later worked some, not worked some, now you can’t depend on it working at all, especially when you really need it too. It kind of echos my life style I guess. What is a good camera to pick up, remembering I went swimming over the side with my cell phone last year, so don’t want to invest too much. Also while on the subject any good ideas for taking a photo of your fish that you want to release. My works some times camera has a timer but I never figured how I could get into the picture with the fish. I usually fish by myself because now I can fish all week and avoid the crowds on the weekends. I usually fish from my boat. Thanks for any thoughts on the subject. Luck

    I bought a hewlett packard digital for my wife and an extra memory card which allows her to take about 700 pics before she has to clear them. I think altogether i have about 80 dollars.

    Don't laugh, but are ya sure it doesn't just need a fresh battery? :confused2: They can be persnickety.

    We have a little Kodak, about the same cost as what Joel described, by the time you get the extra memory card. It's been workin good for a few years now, but I do wish it had the telefoto lens. Good luck!

    I have an HP M425. 5mpxl. $130 with extra memory card. Also, for $90 I got an HP printer/scanner/copier/photo printer. So far they work great. Also, if you don't already use them, Lithium Esquare are the best batteries fo the $. They last forever.

    I can second that one. I just worked on a Kodak digital that insisted on brand new alkali cells before it would work.
