    I finally decided to get me a decent digital camera. I love taking pictures! :)

    Here you go(don't mind the scary-looking bloke):

    Canon IXUS V2 for Europeans, S200 for you Yanks. It has 2x optical zoom, 2.0Mpix cell, small size and stainless steel cover - I could had bought 3Mpix or even 4Mpix camera for the money but I settled on this since I'm quite likely to carry it with me everywhere and I wanted it small and durable.

    And this baby is fast! Start-up time is under 3 seconds, which is kinda nice if you want to 'capture the moment'. Just need to get a larger CF-card for it and shooting I go.

    So, from now on, it's my world in colors! Expect lots of new "Look what pic I just took!"-threads from now on ;)

    Nice one! I went all digital at Christmas when my g/f bought me a digital camera! I'll need to try to post some pics - basses, me ....well maybe just the basses, don't wanna scare anyone!;)

    I got a 128Mb card with it as well as the 16Mb that came as standard (weren't I lucky!), it can take about 400 pics that are real good quality!

    They are very good for saving the moment!

  4. Nice one! Digital cameras are great. a little while ago I picked up a sony DSC-71 3.2 mega pixel and it is the greatest camera I have ever used!

    i think you can see it in the reflection of the grill of this car.

    Pardon me, sir, but my hand doesen't wish to take part in that kind of action..

    I am sure that if you look around, you'll find sites specializing in that kind of material, though :D
