I finally joined the ranks of the digital BGE community and bought a camera. After reading last month's Consumer Reports, and finding that, as usual, some of the top picks have already been discontinued, I settled on the Toshiba PDR-M25, the replacement for the CR Best Buy PDR-M61. It looks like a pretty nice camera with 3x opital zoom (as well as digital) and 2.2 megapixels. The package came with a 16 meg Smartcard, carrying case, and Smartcard floppy disc adapter.
Now all I have to do is figure out how to work the thing....
Hope to be posting entree pics along with the rest of you soon.
