Mine went kerflooey, so looks like I'm in the market for a new one.  Any suggestions? 

Something simple, please, I'm not looking to be the next Ansel Adams.  Just want to take some decent pics of jewelry, etc., without having to hock my car to get a new one.

Well, I really like my Sony 9.1 megapixels 15X Optical Zoom. The model # is DSC-H50, and I wouldn't give it up. I take all photos on "Auto". The only things I set are the little flower thing for close ups, and another thing which I can tell you about if you get one (don't know what it's called) that adjusts the light for close ups.

It's not one of the SLR digitals. They seem too complicated for me, although they really take good photos. I've never seen how they work on close ups, though.

Well, and the video for when the grandkids are around, too. :)

Thanks.  Went to Best Buy and picked up a Nikon 3100S.  Seems simple enough for even me to use, lol.  Tried to use the editing software, I may need an engineering degree for that, ick.  Thank god for Flickr.

You don't have to use the editing software that came with it. You can use whatever you were used to before or any other program that seems to be more usable.

I was getting ready to spent ALOT on a good camera after getting fed up with my point and shoot. Long story short, my friend bought me a tripod and WOW it makes such a big difference for photographing small items like clay jewelry. I have a canon but any decent digital camera $100-$200 works SO MUCH BETTER with a tripod and macro-feature

For me it's Olympus. I keep trading up to better models and I have loved them all. :)

I don't think in this day and age you can really go wrong as long as you buy a name brand and something with a macro setting. should cost $100-$300.

I too am in need for a new camera, I have a big one, looking for a smaller one, but with a good zoom. Anybody have a Panasonic Lumix?

I have the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS10 and I love it! I got it recently because I was having trouble getting my old camera to take the pics I wanted. So far I haven't had any problems with it. It has taken great distance shots and great close ups. And it is very easy to use. Practically point and click. I do recommend them. :)

I am going back and forth between the 8 and 10.  Dont need the GPS in the 10, and I was worried about battery life.  I want the super zoom for my Alaska trip!  Need to buy it now so I get practiced up! :)  Thanks for the good review.
