    It is a compact, I just meant in general. Let me know which one you are leaning towards, and I can go look up some reviews for it, and see how it is. Another fun thing to do is look up photos actually taken by the camera, so you can really see its capablities

    Well so far I'm really liking the Nikon from best buy. I'm reading reviews on it now, but if you could help me with that so I have another sure opinion on it, I would be so very grateful! :)

    So far I am liking it what I see for the price. My MAIN concern would be the batteries. I find they don't last very long, or at least in the camera I had the batteries didn't. We always had to buy lithiums so that it would last 12 hours, and those were about 12$'s for a pack of 4.

    Other then that all I see is its not the best in lowlight which just means your photos will be a bit grainy because you will have to Up your ISO, and once your ISO hits 400 with this camera it starts to get grainy or muddy.

    Don't let the low light issue deter you though, as it does have a flash, I haven't found how far the flash is effective though. And people who have made reviews from using it that arn't professionals are finding that as long as you are in good light it seems to compare up pretty good in terms of clarity and quality.

    Overall I think its a nice little find. As long as you are ok with the batteries.

    Here are the 2 reviews I found most informative

    Ya I don't like batteries like that. The only thing I like about my current camera is that the battery is one grey rectangular box that has it's own special charger. It usually lasts a really long time.

    I did find this on amazon.com though. Would it be any good? I'm not sure if it's lithium, it doesn't say so I'm supposing it's not. But it's rechargeable and I like that.

    For the lighting... ya I was hoping it would do well in low lighting, because that's what annoys me the most about my current camera. If the lighting is just a tad low, the pictures look like sh**! Super, super grainy and I hate that.

    I especially love pictures at dawn/dusk, and that is low lighting right? Is the Canon from ebay good in low lighting?

    I think I'm going to keep looking. I'm glad you found the review from ephotozine, as it stated that landscape pictures came out well, but sport pictures (so things in movement) not so well... And what worries me is when my dad will take pictures or videos of me riding. I was hoping to get a camera that would give me nice clear pictures (for once in my life) of me riding, and I won't be getting that after all... so back to google. :(

    Oh and sorry, I forgot to post the link for the batteries I found on Amazon... no point now I guess. :(

    Most cannons arn't good at low lighting if it is hand held, I have taken some great pictures with the Canon at low light but that's with a tripod, so you can lower the shutter speed. I will see lowlight doesn't apply to things like sunset shots, this camera would do GREAT for that, just make sure your focued on the light so you can get the great silhouette shapes.

    It wont matter what kind of batteries you put in the camera as long as they are AA? I think that's the size, so it will take lithiums, and yeah I am used to the rectangle square box as that's what the powershot uses it it lasts days which comes in handy.

    Yeah for a good sport shot, what you really need something is with a high shutter speed, you up that shutter speed, and you'll capture movement every time. Basically to get typical human movement would be 1/125. So between that and 1/400 and you can capture any movement you want.
