    Any camera people here?

    I've been looking at the Nikon D40 for a while now. Last week it was marked down to $450. I told my mom I was going to grab it on the way home from work. She sent me an e-mail with a link to a camera that she said was better and half the price of what I was looking at. It's a Fuji S2000. She's really into cameras so I figured she knew what she was talking about, and at half the price of what I was going to spend decided to go for it.

    Well, it came in last week and I spent days going over the users manual and trying different settings. I hate this thing!! It's got awesome zoom, which is a big thing for me. But the pictures come out all ...................... soft maybe is the word I'm looking for? Just not sharp and crisp.

    So, I'm thinking of grabbing that Nikon - that's no longer on sale now - on my way home. But before I do I wanted to see if anyone has suggestions for one they own and love. I'm looking to spend under $550.

    Aww man... I was really getting into your decsription of the "soft" pictures. I have a little sony digi that I used to love. The pictures were sharp until I made the setting for picture size smaller so that I could upload them here with no trouble......hmmmmmm....maybe I just figured out MY problem!!! HEY...Maybe your's too. I don't know much about cameras though. In fact I'm not really sure why I decided to's been a long weekend, perhaps my mind hasn't caught up to me! :roll:

    Good Luck with the camera shopping. Sorry I wasn't much help.

    I am currently taking a professional photography course. I suggest you sticking to Canons. As far as quality goes you can't get better, also they are all very user friendly.
    If you are dead set on those 2 cameras (which I hope you might consider the Canons) you will be better off with the Nikon. That is the most comparable camera to the Canons.

    If you do some homework, read reviews online as as go on youtube to find professional reviews on both the Canons and Nikons, it will help you decide which one works best for you.

    Good Luck.

    Yearling is a good site for great camera reviews and equipment.

    I love photography. I use a Canon PowerShot A650 IS, it was $400. I got it wholesale though.
    But yeah, Canons or Nikons are really good; they take lovely pictures! :) The settings can be a bit difficult as there are like so many, LOL! But once you know how to do it it's pretty easy. Hope I helped!
