Need a new Camera

11 posts in this topic

I know this is a bit of a re-post, but I couldn't find the old thread, and I wanted an updated one.

Long story short, I am going to the Dominican Republic in a few weeks, and want to take as many pictures as possible while there.

Neither me nor the lady are good at photography, so we don't need all the bells and whistles, but we do want something that will take good shots, will last a while, is not too cumbersome, and does not break the bank.

Iphone cameras just don't cut it.

Looking now, and hope to purchase in the next week or so. Help a huddler out.

Do you want just a normal digital camera or one with interchangeable lenses like a DSLR?

canon g12 is a badass little machine... around $400... good build quality... actually operates like a camera (not a computer.) Lots of options if you ever want to use them. Best point and shoot i've ever used.

Lumix TS4. This camera is perfect for families. Waterproof down to 40 feet (takes amazing pictures under water), shockproof (can drop camera from 12 feet). It has picture stabilizer and it records amazing videos and it also has a built in GPS in case u get lil lost. I love Lumix TS.

That last picture you took with Cam running from the locals is pretty cool.....

I didn't know he was in St. Lucia a few months ago.

    • I was a Marine Brat at Camp Lejeune NC and graduated from CLHS in 1978 and on 28 June 1978 I joined the Navy.  I retired On June 30th 2003 after 25 yrs of Naval Service and have been serving overseas to support our troops ever since. I was in Tikrit when they captured Saddam.  Soldiers from our base were the ones who actually found him.  I have been in places in Iraq called Mosul, Al Asad, and Al Kut,  I have been in Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.  The living hell hole called FOB Shank were incoming was a daily encounter. You see young soldiers who don't even shave yet.  Some look like they lied to get in.  Men and women from every walk of life.  Putting that uniform on.  So needless to say, I am very attached and proud of every one of them.  Whether they know me or not.  Tears fill my eyes every time we lose one. (Just lost one last week). This video, I saw when it was originally aired, still make me water up.   I challenge anybody to show me a more military dedicated team, in ANY LEAGUE, ANY SPORT, that supports the troops like the Carolina Panthers.  I'll give my hated Yankees a close 2nd. ($10,00 ticket with a military ID) **at old Yankee Stadium. Carolina is a class act, plain and simple. Thanks for posting this again,
