What was your first Digital Camera, and how is it compared to the one you have now?

What was your first Digital Camera, and how is it compared to the one you have now?


My first was the Vivitar Vivicam 3915, 5 MP, 2x digital zoom, 2560x1920 resolution, 1.4 inch screen.. it costed me $250 CA (approx. $200 US) .. I think it's alright for it's price.. It's also very easy to use.. I'm not too happy with it's picture quality though .. I still have this camera now, but I am planning on getting a Kodak EasyShare DX7590 as soon as I get the money

I bought my first digital camera in the summer 2000 it was a Kodak DC240 Zoom with 1.3 Mpxiels (1280x960) and 3x optical zoom I payed 661 USD for it. Three years in june 2003 I bought the Canon Digital IXUS 400 (called Canon Powershot S400 in North America) for 697 USD it has 4.0 Mpxiels (2272x1704) and also 3x optical zoom.

I would like to own the Canon EOS 350D (Rebel XT) but it's expensive....

I bought a Dimage 7i when they first came out (about 3 years ago). I don't see replacing it anytime soon...fits my photographic needs just fine. It may get passed by megapixel size, but that's not such a huge deal for me. It's an extremely versatile camera...as sophisticated or unsophisticated as you want to make it.

I got an Olympus c-5060WZ several months ago, and I am very happy with it, even though it has been surpassed by a better model. I thought I took a risk buying this camera cuz I never heard of Olympus before, but I chose it anyways since it seemed like such a good camera and I didn't really like any other ones. Most digital cameras are ridiculously small and I find them awkward to hold, even though my hands are small.

My first camera was the ledgendary Sony P-1 ....3megapixles, 3x optical zoom, and a hefty $800 US price.
I was happy, it provided good results.

then i bought a Sony T-1...5mp, 3x optical zoom... a good $600 US..
I thaught and still think the results are pathetic for the premium price.

And now i have a Panasonic Fz-3. a whooping 12x optical zoom, but only 3mp.
3mp is fine for me cos i only print A4 and my main uses are for internet. The colours, and the focus is much better than previous cameras, and it has so much less noise too. So far im very happy.

i want a Panasonic Fz-20...

Haha...I see I am not the only one who's first cam was a Sony.

My first was the F55V, bought in July 2000 for about S$1300 (US$784). It was Sony's second best camera at that time with a 3.3 CCD, but it has no optical zoom.



I bought my second camera 2 weeks ago....a Canon 350D, as if most of you dont know by now. Got it for about S$1800 (US$1,085) with a kit lens, and I also bought a Tafron zoom lens for about S$600.



Last week, I bought my 3rd digi cam, and its a sony again! I cant do without my F55V, so I got its latest reencarnation...The F88!



5CCD, 3X optical zoom, a whole host of other features, and it costs me just S$550 (US$331)!

Since 1.5 years I have a SONY Cybershot DSC-P32, 3.2 MP max and only x3 digital zoom. The price was $237 from the Sony dealer (much cheaper then that in the market). However I redeamed points acumulated on my Credit Card worth $164, so I actually paid only the difference.




But 8 days ago I bought a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 for $505, inclusive 512MB SD Card or $457 for the camera alone:




5.0 MP, x12 Optical zoom, x4 digital zoom, TIFF mode, Image stabilizer.

Just bought my first one about 3 weeks ago. Casio Exilim ex-z57. I really havent got a clue how to use it properly yet, this is my first dab in to any type of photography. 5.0 mp, 3x optical, crappy digital zoom. Nice big 2.7" screen.

My first digital camera was a Sony DSC-P72, it had no manual functions, 3MP, 3x zoom. Recently I upgraded to a Canon EOS 350-D, and am looking to buy some L-glass whenever I can shell out the $$. Which won't be any time soon, but that's ok.
