Hey, my name is driftking2k and I found this site on google when I was searching for a photography/camera forum, because I need some help deciding my first digital camera. My mom only wants to spend 100-150, but i think I can push her to around 180$. Ive always liked taking pictures with my friends digital camera's. I dont really know anything about them, other than I researched aperture and shutter priority. I think Apurture is when you take a picture and the background is blurred, which I like. I want to find the best camera for the money that my mom will spend. Ive found 4 cameras so far. Different prices and features. Lumix DMC-LZ8 Kodak Z1285 Canon PowerShot A570 IS Canon Powershot A590-IS If you have any other suggestions for a camera please let me know. I want to get the BEST camera for the price range.
