Please help. My girlfriends youngest daughter was saving up for a digital camera with her babysiting money. She has close to $150. She wants one like mine (Kodak 4310) Its ok but you have to be pretty stil of it will take a fuzzy shot. I think she can do better.

Megapixels is not a big concern as we , or she, wont be making any prints larget than 8x10 so a 3MP is plenty enough. What has a good shutter speed? Or what is it that enable it to take good pics without blurring? We saw a Fuji and it looked good. Is Fuji a decent camera?
Fuji A345

Also what does the ISO mean? ie ISO 100,200,400 etc?

Shutter speed depends on a lot of things like the apature (I con't spell it - f/stop is another name). The higher the ISO the more light the sensor will pick up making a faster shutter speed and thus a better picture.

I'm happy with my Fuji S5000 - I just used it on vacation and filled up my 256mb card 4x over - had to download to the laptop every other day.

The one you listed should take nice pics - just be warned you won't get bunches of zoom off that. It says it will do 1/2000 second shutter speed which should yield nice crisp pics in sunlight. It says the sensitivity is AUTO and goes from an effective 64 to 400 - 64 is slower film (requiring a longer shutter duration) 400 is quicker film (requiring a shorter shutter duration). Mine will pop up a Shake Warning to alert me to a slow (long) shutter which can result in blur - i typically comes on around a 1/40 shutter. Above 1/60 is typically good enough to compensate for trembling hands.

Thanks for info, I will repost in Photo section.

But first here is the little girl who is buying it. Notice how an MP5 makes a kid happy? This is my Gf youngest daughter who was a victim of a pedo that I mentioned in another thread. In this pic it looks like she is thinking about payback.
