Hi All,
I recently took the plunge and bought a Kodak DC120 digital
camera on E-Bay. It came with a 16mg memory card. I have been
really happy with it. The resolution is something like 980x1260.
The pictures print out beautifully. When I print them out on good
photographic paper, they look just like photographs. It does take
a while to download to the computer, but I just go do other things
until it is done. So far, I haven't maxed out the memory card. It
does go through AA batteries, but four seem to last a few days of
picture taking.

This camera has become an essential tool in my art room. My
students have been working on tablas for our Day of the Dead
exhibition in Sacramento. I have been photographing the entire
process of paper mache skeletons in environments. When I take
the kid's pictures, they just love watching the picture come up on
the LCD screen.

I know the DC120 is about three generations behind what Kodak
has now, but the price was right on E-Bay. Just my 2 cents worth!
