Anybody have any advice?
Not looking for anything fancy, just something cheap that will take a picture, that’s in focus and can manage when the light isn’t perfect.
Thanks!

any Canon point and shoot with 5.0mp+ should be fine.

Have foud one, will buy tomorrow. Reckon I will need a tripod, or does balancing it on various bits of furniture do the job sufficiently?

depends on what you want to do, if you’re solely taking outfit shots in one place you can balance, but a tripod allows you to go to different places where furniture might not be the right height.
Also good for other occasions like group shots or (if you’re doing photo for more than outfits) night shots or places the light isn’t great (the flash is NOT your friend, it washes EVERYTHING out, so it’s best to use a slower shutter speed with no flash, and if you’re holding the camera while using a slower shutter speed, pictures get blurry – your camera will take care of the shutter speed, but it’s good to know the basics of how it works and why pictures are blurry)

canon!! very user-friendly, the quality and display is top notch. Believe me, i’ve had my share of olympus, nikon, sony, and canon (all point and shoot digital cameras) and I’d highly recommend canon:))

Pfft, depends on your definition of expensive. Even the cheapest dSLRs are out of my price range, especially when you factor in lenses that cost almost as much as the camera itself.
I’m using a Canon Powershot point and shoot, and it’s been going great guns. Simple to use, good auto modes and a far better manual mode.
Like all non SLRs, it sucks at night shots, but it’s otherwise great.

I have a Canon Powershot A590, because I wanted manual functions—but it runs out of batteries every half hour! I might take it back to the store and have it checked out. My first (previous) Canon lasted me 7 years, and probably would have lasted longer had I not brought it to the beach…

Thank you!
I really am going to get a camera this time, once christmas is over. Then I can actually post here without being ashamed of my picture quality.
And I’m definately making it a canon.
Thanks!

i’ll go with egghead.
And i am a big big big fan of canon. I made the most beautiful pic’s with my eos 300. but it’s too expensive to play with it, and my negative scanner is broken. :( So i experiment with my beloved eos d400. For a good hand camera i prefer my ixus 900 ti. i love that one. And even my mother can make good picuters by only pressing the buttom ;)
