    canon a610


    my current digital is like 3 years old, a fuji (please don't laugh)... I need a new one, my old is 2.0 megapixels, this one is 5.0... I know they go higher but I think this is all I need... I'm a pretty good photographer, but still am not rich enough to buy a slr ditigal ($1000+++), this has manual settings etc and gets the best reviews for its price...



    I'm drinkin a 40 and need advice.. I'm also very cheap and if I get out this buying mood it might be months before I contemplate buying again...

    if your drunk and you feel like spending cash do it before your sober reasonable mind kicks back in.

    do it thats a pretty good buy, like you said since you cant affor an SLR right now this would be a good item to have until you can afford such things.

    http://www.cnet.com reviews, price comparisons, etc. When buying a digital camera like that, be smart and search around for good prices. If best buy is selling it for $300, i bet you can find it from a legit online store for under $250 and free shipping. Or you could actually go to a store and haggle with a manager to try to get them to throw in a free 512mb memory card or something. They might straight up say no, but they might want the business and you know they're still making profit. I have some other good camera review and price comparison sites, but i don't know them off the top of my head. If you're interested i'll find them for you tomorrow.

    edit: i definitely read too fast and didn't realize you bought it already. oh well
