    hey folks, I would like to buy a new digital camera for hobbiest\noob puropses.
    Dont need anything complex.
    main condition, under 200$ the closer to 100$ the better.
    and also compact will do just fine, I thought about Canon A530, maybe A610.
    what do you think?
    Also, how is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3?

    10x.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    My sister just bought an A530. The pictures aren't bad. For the price it looks like a decent camera.

    I have had the a610 for about a year (from 35mm SLR that I will soon replace with a DSLR). Good camera, images, features. A little large to carry around with you in small pockets, but battery life is excellent with disposable litium ions. At the finest setting, you can print a good 8x10 with no problems.

    I use a tripod and the consecutive shot (burst) feature to make up for the delay in shutter response.

    just my 2-cents. ​
