    We got my oldest boy a Sony Cybershot 7.2 megapixel for Christmas and it's very nice: light, easy to use, easy to upload. We got a real deal on it - about $125 - they typically go for a bit more, but you can still get it for under $200. I took this pic with it:

    I bought a Sony for my wife at Christmas. I don't remember the Model but I'll e-mail you tonight with pictures of the monster butt I did.

    If you made that statement on any other forum but this one, you would probably go to jail. LOL

    I was going to say the same thing....using "wife" and "monster butt" in the same sentence can be bad for one's health :laugh:

    I just purchased a Sony 700 and really love it. I shot for years with a Minolta 7000 and all me AF lens will work on the new Sony. Big reason is buying the new camera was all the lens I have. You will enjoy the camera. There is a lot of difference between the 100 and 700. :)

    how is the ease of use? complicated stuff or easy to get it going?

    Mike, I second the recommendations of the Sony Cybershot series with the Carl Zeiss lens.

    The good news is most of the consumer level DSLR's have a really good fully automatic mode. That should get you going quick and then you'll have lots of time to figure out all of the other features.

  • Other than take pictures of food (OBVIOUSLY!!!), what else do you want to do with the camera? I've been doing the DSLR thing for several years now and that is a mighty expensive camera if you are just getting into the DSLR thing.

    My first rule of are buying a system, not just a camera. The lenses that you buy will be around a long time after the camera is gone. Look at the lenses. See if they are in the price range that you can afford to add on. I'm sure these Sonys are fine cameras.
