I've decided that I'll be asking Santa for a new camera instead of a new computer for christmas, I feel that photography will be more interesting then becoming a computer nerd.
I've been looking around at Dpreview.com and for about 500$ US it looks like thise cam is a pretty good value. 3.24 MP and 6x optical with ability to attach other lenses...seems nice to me. I dunno though. Anybody have any advice?
