This is a thread for the discusion of taking photographs and cameras.

I am taking a photography class this semester, and as such I have decided that it's time to upgrade my digicam. Currently I have a Canon Powershot A60 which is only two megapixels, although it has a wide range of manually adjustable features.

I am thinking about getting the Canon Powershot S3 IS as an upgrade. Anyone have any other suggestions? I'm looking for something in the $300 to $400 range, so not quite SLR level (I can borrow my moms if I want to use an SLR).

    I mean the S3 is nice and all, but I wish I'd had the cash at the time for the low-end Rebel for my trip, but oh well.

    also here's some photos take with my camera with the auto settings. I actually just ordered the lens adapter and hood set. Which is cool because then I can use 58mm lenses and whatnot.

    one of the only issues I've had with mine is it sometimes has trouble figuring out what to focus on in Macro Mode, but I might just need to fiddle with the settings a bit more.

    speaking of which...

    Well last I checked SLR's are around $600 at the minimum. The camera I'm getting is a birthday present from my parents and grandmother so the ceiling is set at $400.

    I think the S3 is an excellent camera to learn on. Shooting with an SLR won't make your pictures better, and until you learn how to make a camera do what you want it to do it'll just be a waste of money.

    i have an old canon a75 i am planning on running it into the ground in europe this fall since much better cameras run about 200 dollars now. i'd love to pick up a slr but i anticipate being robbed at some point during the two months backpacking so i'm only bringing things i am cool with dudes stealing.
