his tongue went click click click as his head hit the basket after the guillotine's blade had sliced it cleanly. for a few seconds his eyes blinked and a reddening of the cheeks was noted by the attending physician. the crowd howled in glee...

oh, i'm sorry, wrong topic. click click click is for camera/photo/digital photo discussions which seem to have a place in our hearts.

Originally started by Baha at the old site, I thought it was time we brought it to the new boards

I would demand tickets, but my shiny, new 50" Plasma TV says, "Stay at home, your nachos are better!"

The Sparby World Tour may be happening in February/March. It looks like I could be sent to both Bangalore and Shanghai for work. I'm trying to figure out what to do for a camera. I have a nice 10mp Canon point-and-shoot that I broke the LCD screen on. I don't know if I want to repair it or pick up something new for the trip.

dmc-lx3 for outside shots and many inside too.

i will say that the canon 9g is nice for dark settings. e.g. home pr0n.

What a journey.
Is there a (definitive) list somewhere of GPS/geotag-enabled cameras?

I'd like to start monitoring it and see if one pops up in my price range. Then, get iPhoto 09, as well.

So, I bought that 5d Mk II from the B&H stock I posted about.

It's fantastic - I'll be posting some content from it soon.

Now, I have a spare 30d to sell, with kit lens, 8GB SanDisk CF Card, Charger & battery. Anyone want to buy it? $450 for youse guys.

I eBay it on the 13th, so let me know!

Tom, if you don't have another buyer, I'm seriously thinking about it. I'll pm you.

Nothing solid yet, Remy. I've had a "sounds tempting" offer via PM though.

I'd do it if I could find a buyer for my 10D.

I'm gonna go there myself this year ... if Apple ever updates their machines I'll know what I'm doing with the rest of my budget.

This might be my next camera, once someone has it on sale.


$399 Nikon (pas) with 26-624mm lens!! SIX HUNDRED TWENTY FOUR !

And the feature that I want on my D50 - it will take multiple exposure/shutter photos with one press of the shutter release, so one can choose the best from the bunch. I am still trying to figure out how to do that with my D50 and its ability to bracket.

I'm thinking of getting a digicamera for my soon to be 6 year old daughter. The kids cameras that I've seen (we own one, for our 3 year old) are crap. She's easily capable of taking decent shots and she's not a big destroyer so I think a $99 investment would be fine. My question is: what has a decent interface for a 6 year old? The less menus and crap the better. Small (and preferably pink) are also plusses. The cameras I've seen though have an awful lot of menus... I'd really like a point and shoot with the capability to view and that's it. Maybe zoom, maybe.

I'm in the same boat as baha (except that Noah probably would prefer a color other than pink). I have pictures I took when I was 7 with my first Instamatic (black and white! very artsy); I think it's time for Noah to have a camera.

When I visited my brother and sister in Iowa over Thanksgiving, I let my four year old and six year old niece take pictures with my Casio Exilim. They were naturals. As long as it has an LCD screen, they can frame their pictures, although it would be nice to have some more image stabilization. I was initially worried because the camera is an ultra-compact, and I wasn't sure how well they would do with it (visions of broken LCD in my head), but I showed them they have to use the wrist strap and they did a good job. Anything small is good for their hands. I didn't spend a lot of time with the interface, so they only knew how to turn it on and take a picture.

I think Robert's (Catalog Showroom) downtown here in Indy has the Nikon L18 for $89 at the moment. The new L19 will be $119 MSRP.

I bought a used Canon SD1000 on eBay (tiny, cheap, reasonably robust). I give it to my 5 YO daughter whenever she asks. Unfortunately she asks a lot less than I expected. Also, she loses interest after the images get transferred. For her, the fun is all instant gratification on the LCD screen and not so much in post processing.

I'm confused by the new Microsoft commercial with the 4-1/2 year old girl supposedly demonstrating how easy it is to send a digital photo of her tropical fish to her family.

She demonstrates how you put the memory card in the computer and then you, "click here."

They show her clicking the "Cancel" button on a window that says it's transferring the photos. Huh?

Find an Olympus Stylus SW series (re-branded the Tough in January 09) -- they take a beating. I have never loved Oly's image compression algorithms but they cameras are solid for a point/shoot. The SW or "Tough" series can survive a drop from 6', go underwater to like 30' and just about be driven over by a car (not quite but it does withstand some high amount of weight/pressure).
