Which is a better choice for a nUb?

This:

http://shopping.yahoo.com/p:Canon%20...era:1991873201

Or this:

http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQueri...equestid=14967

Got the latter for the gf for the same price as the Canon (black friday @ BB), but she likes the Canon better and she's planning on exchanging it. I for one believe the Canon will be more of a pain in the ass to use, but she's not hearin' it. This is for point and shoot type applications, nothing too fancy.

I knows, hence the reason it'll be more of a PITA, but she likes hte fact you can swap lenses and what not. She wants a 'professional' looking camera. no joke. Spoiled ass biotch.

Hey Bobbert.

It's called a DSLR. Digital Single Lens Reflex.

They have some affordable ones out there. Nikon D40 is probably your best affordable bet. Has interchangeable lenses, though limited. If she's a total n00b, she'll be fine with it.

I think Shadrach shoots with one and he takes some fucking amazing pics with it.

I'm just returning the favor (she just ordered me new tires and got me a nav over the weekend). Alex, . that's Mao's kinda women, err, girls. Speaking of Mao, that's where she got the idea from. Once she saw how big his camera was, she fell in love with it and wanted 1 ever since.




Thanks Bobbert 2.
