    I'm in the market for a digital camera for home use.  Do you have any recommendations?

    Thanks for asking this Q.  Photography has become more interesting to me lately and I am looking forward to following this.

    Either Canon or Nikon are excellent quality models. Since you want to pursue digital, these two brands allow you to use S.L.R lenses on their D.S.L.R models.

    However, anything over 4 megapixels should be good enough unless you want to enlarge your images to a ratio higher than 11x14. I suggested a D.S.L.R because this is the format most widely used and the lenses are interchangeable; you can use various size lenses and therefore experiment.
    Canon Rebel T1i $594.00 @ Amazon (interchangeable lens)
    Nikon Coolpix P500 $386.00 @Amazon (fixed lens)

    For more flexibility and creative freedom, then a D.S.L.R with a hot shoe flash mount (not built in)

    Email me or post further posts for more detailed info.

    If the user is a beginner or hobbyist, there are a number of point-and-shoot / compact cameras that don't cost as much as DSLR's and yet produce quality images good enough for a hobbyist.

    You can look at Nikon Coolpix S9100 ($330), Canon Powershot S95 ($440), or  Canon Powershot  SD4000 IS ($270). If you want to look at Sony then you have Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 ($300).

    You can visit a store and look at these cameras and select one that you feel comfortable with.

    Of course if you want to go beyond point-and-shoot / compact cameras, then you will have to look at DSLRs. That incidentally will have to be be a more involved exercise.

    Thanks for the input everyone.  I just purchased a Nikon Coolpix P500 and I just love it!  I'm having such fun learning all the different features.  I just re-did the photos in my Potato Salad hub....check them out!  Thanks again.
