The Easyshare is a really good little camera. It was one of the first ones I owned and still have it. Great camera to have on hand.

I honestly think every serious horse owner should own one.

I myself have never used it. I know we have a few members on here who have tho, hopefully they will see this thread. Here is a link I looked up online that you might find of interest and answer your question.
Cheers!

Also sorry to hijack the thread, but does anyone own or has anyone used the new Olympus Pen E-PL1? It's a mix between a compact camera and a SLR. Which means it's not much bigger than a compact and is simpler to use than a SLR but the the image sensor is the same size as a SLRs image sensor and you can change the lenses.
I really want it since my camera is really starting to break (canon ixus 70), so I was just wondering? :)


Sample shots:



(from Flickr...I did NOT take them.)

Here is a review on the camera:
Olympus E-PL1 Preview: 1. Introduction: Digital Photography Review
This is something that caught my eye:

Quote:
Make no mistake - this isn't a camera that should add further confusion for people trying to decide between one of the existing E-PXs and Panasonic's GF1. Its simplified interface dictates that it'll be best suited to compact camera users who want to get better photos straight away and learn about things such as apertures in their own time. Experienced users who regularly want to take control of individual shooting parameters are likely to find themselves frustrated by the sheer amount of button-pressing induced by the loss of control dials.
It sounds to me like this is a camera that's trying to do both, but is really not achieving a successful bridge. I would hate to not have the control, and dials certainly are easier to use than buttons.
I would see if your local camera store offers a trial period on any of their cameras to see if you like it -- it sounds like it's a camera that you either love or hate.

If you're going to spend that much money on a camera (suggested retail price according to Olympus' website is $599), I would much rather spend it on a lower-end DSLR, especially if you are thinking of continuing your education in photography. In reference to the quote that JDI posted - all lower end DSLR's will also allow you to "get better photos straight away", however once you have learned more about photography, a DSLR will take you so much farther.
I agree with JDI, this seems like a camera you would either love or hate. I don't think I would like it very much.
I will say, however, that if you are just looking for a compact camera that can do a little more (which could be the case, as your old camera was compact), then it could be a good camera for you!

That's exactly why I want it. I would love a Canon T1i but I hate carrying them around since they are so bulky and big etc.
I think I would like the camera tbh.

...and you're on the right track of thinking. If you do some research and look in the right places and do the right amount of asking, you can find some great DSLRs around the same price as their lower end counter parts.

As I have brought up before tho, keep in mind the camera is only as good as the user. If you can learn how to use even the more simple settings of a "cheap" camera, you can take some absolutely incredible shots. It all has to do with what you know.
