    I have a Nikon Cool Pix 7600.

    It is a great point and shoot. Had it since last summer and took alot of great pics with it with no problems. It is a battery hog though.

    I wish it had a longer lens, but you get what you pay for.

    The wife got me this. Way more than I need or know how to use, but I like it. Most people are looking for something smaller and easier though.

    I got my wife this same camera for christmas, I am liking it so much that she is saying I got it for myself for christmas It is a very nice camera, probably a little too nice.
    What I cant figure out these days is for $400-$500 more manufactures are bumping up the megapixals and not the zoom. Who wants to go out and buy a $500 camera that only has x4 optical and a overkill of 7-9 megapixals. IMO 5 megapixals is more than enough, to me for all the kiddo's sports and trips to the lake, x10 optical is a bare minimum, x4 opt just does not cut it.

    I have a Sony Cyber-shot 5.0 digital camera and works great. Its actually more camera than I'll ever need. When I bought it new it was about $560 but the price is lower now.
