I know that there has been lots of talk of digi cams here, but mostly $1k+ cameras that are SLRs- unfortunately, I can nowhere near afford one of those, so I wanted to know if there are any non-SLR digi cams with a good zoom, or if there are any SLRs that might be a little older and somewhat cheap (few hundred $$$ tops) on eBay or some other wholesale venue.
One camera I saw today was as follows:
3x optical/2x digital zoom
64mb memory card
All of that was for $200- is it a good deal? I don't know if the zoom is enough for good aviation pics- I will be flying a lot in December and want to take pictures, but I don't have the money to develop a lot of film, so a digi cam would allow me to take the many pictures I want.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
