  4. Starter Cameras Ideal Cameras for the Beginners Olympus FE-190 The perfect choice for kids and teenagers who take pictures of friends for the internet or picture sizes up to 4x6. Thin enough to go anywhere and easy enough for anyone to use.

  5. Starter Cameras Ideal Cameras for the Beginners • Panasonic DMC-LZ5se • 6.0 MP • 6X Optical Zoom • Optical Image Stabilization • Uses 2 AA Batteries • 2.5 in. LCD • Uses SD Memory Cards • Fast Shutter Speeds Downsides: standard lens quality, no viewfinder, not the easiest in this genre, AA batteries

  6. Starter Cameras Ideal Cameras for the Beginners Panasonic DMC-LZ5se The perfect choice for parents taking pictures of young kids on stage. Ideal picture size is up to 4x6. The camera is slightly larger, but easy to hold.

  7. Next Level Cameras Cameras ideal for those who want more than the basics • Canon A630 • 8.0 MP • 4X Optical Zoom • 2.5 in. Rotating LCD • Uses 4 AA Batteries • Uses SD Memory Cards • Fast Shutter Speeds • Manual Controls Downsides: larger size, AA batteries

  8. Next Level Cameras Cameras ideal for those who want more than the basics Canon A630 This camera has more control than any other camera under $400. It’s perfect for someone who would like to play with manual controls from time to time, but still needs something quick and easy to use. Print sizes up to 8x10 will look decent.

  9. Next Level Cameras Cameras ideal for those who want more than the basics • Canon SD800is • 7 MP • 3.8X Optical Zoom • Optical Image Stabilization • Rechargeable Battery • Fast Shutter Speed • Facial Auto Focus • 2.5 in. LCD Downside: confusing menus, price, small size can be awkward

  10. Next Level Cameras Cameras ideal for those who want more than the basics Canon SD800is This camera is one of my personal favorites. Its small size is perfect for keeping in a purse or coat pocket and capturing candid, spontaneous moments. The optical image stabilization keeps blurry pictures to a minimum, even in low light. Perfect for pictures up to 5x7, although sometimes 8x10 will look good.

  11. Next Level Cameras Cameras ideal for those who want more than the basics • Nikon L5 • 7.1 MP • 5X Optical Zoom • 2.5 in. LCD • Uses 2 AA Batteries • VR – Vibration Reduction • Nikkor Glass Lens • In Camera Editing Downsides: AA batteries, no view finder

  12. Next Level Cameras Cameras ideal for those who want more than the basics Nikon L5 One of Nikon’s best point and shoot cameras. Very easy to use, but gives you enough control to make some great pictures. 8X10 prints are possible, but 5X7’s are the norm. Not quite the same quality as the Canon SD800is, but at $100 cheaper, it’s not a bad choice!

  13. Advanced Cameras More settings. More functionality. Better Pictures. • Panasonic TZ1 • 5.0 MP • 10X Optical Zoom • Optical Image Stabilization • LEICA Lens • Rechargeable Battery • 2.5 in. LCD • Easy to Read Menus Downsides: no viewfinder, only 5 MP

  14. Advanced Cameras More settings. More functionality. Better Pictures. Panasonic TZ1 This camera has a great zoom and an awesome lens in such a small package. This camera is great for vacation shooting when carrying a big camera isn’t practical. It’s easy to use, and will print great 5X7 pictures/

  15. Advanced Cameras More settings. More functionality. Better Pictures. • Canon S3is • 6.0 MP • 12X Optical Zoom • Optical Image Stabilization • Uses 4 AA Batteries • 2 in. Rotating LCD • Fast Shutter Speed • Ergonomically Comfortable Downsides: AA batteries, large body, smaller LCD

  16. Advanced Cameras More settings. More functionality. Better Pictures. Canon S3is Another great camera from Canon. This camera is fairly easy to use, and has a lot of control to it. This camera is great for getting close-up shots when the photographer can’t be any closer. The high optical zoom and optical image stabilization result in pictures worthy of 8X10 prints.

  17. Advanced Cameras More settings. More functionality. Better Pictures. • Sony N2 • 10.1 MP • 3X Optical Zoom • Digital Image Stabilization • Rechargeable Battery • 3 in. Touch-screen LCD • Slide Show Playback w/ music • Carl Zeiss Lens • Manual Controls Downsides: price, uses Sony MS Pro Duo cards, no viewfinder

  18. Advanced Cameras More settings. More functionality. Better Pictures. • Sony N2 • This camera is meant to be shown off. With its huge touch screen LCD, built in slideshow, and spectacular movie mode, it’s hard not to want to show it off. 8x10 prints will look good from this camera, which is rare from cameras this small.

  19. Semi-pro Cameras Turn the enthusiast into the artist • Canon Rebel XTi • 10.1 MP • 18-55mm Lens Included • Self Cleaning CMOS Sensor • Rechargeable Battery • 3fps for a maximum of 9 sec. • 9 Point Auto Focus • More than 50 Lenses Available • Uses Compact Flash Memory Downsides: price, availability

  20. Semi-pro Cameras Turn the enthusiast into the artist Canon Rebel Xti One of the newest SLR’s, this camera is difficult to find. It has all the great features of any D-SLR, like professional quality prints, fast shutter speeds, interchangeable lenses, and un-rivaled control. It’s compatible with Canon EF, EF-S, TS-E and MP-E interchangeable lenses as well as Canon EX-series flashes.

  21. Semi-pro Cameras Turn the enthusiast into the artist • Sony Alpha • 10.2 MP • 18-70mm Lens Included • Self Cleaning CCD Sensor • Rechargeable Battery • 3fps • 9 Point Auto Focus • Uses Minolta and Sony Lenses • Continuous Auto Focus Downsides: price, accessories

  22. Semi-pro Cameras Turn the enthusiast into the artist Sony Alpha Sony’s first DSLR is impressive. It uses Minolta’s engineering and Sony’s creativity. The self-cleaning imaging sensor shakes prevents dust from ruining pictures. The continuous auto focus works with an optical sensor located below the viewfinder that detects light. It’s hard to take a bad picture when the camera does this much work!

  23. Digital Camcorders have not changed much since July’s presentation. Most camcorders transition a month or two after Christmas, meaning the best time to buy is usually Jan. and Feb. The biggest changes to camcorders have been from Sony’s line-up of hard drive and high-def camcorders. Sony DCR-SR40 30GB hard-drive Sony DCR-SR80 80GB hard-drive Sony DCR-SR1 30GB hard-drive High-Definition Sony DCR-UX1 Records directly to DVD High-Definition Digital Camcorders
