    Ok picture Guru's I have a question regarding memory card types.

    What is your preferred memory card type? I gnererally stay away from compact flash cards due to bulk and being a bit more expensive. I'm looking into getting a Digital SLR here in the next week or two and I was wondering if I should rethink my decision to stay away from them. The other reason I stay away is I have seen several times where the pins got stuck in the memory card itself making it useless to use after that.

    Anyone have any thoughts or advice?

    It depends on what camera you get. Only the pro bodies from Canon can use both cards. I know Nikons use SD cards, but I don't know if they also use CF.

    If you buy a 4 GB or larger you don't really need to change the card unless you area shooting professionally and shoot a lot.

    I have heard about pins breaking on CF cards inside the cameras, but I have shot well over 200k frames and changes memory cards hundreds of times, and I have never had a problem other than with a cheap card reader.

    I wouldn't steer you away from buying a DSLR camera unless you are not serious about photography, or if you cannot afford one, or you think it's too big and not convenient.

    If you end up with a Canon DSLR check out http://photography-on-the.net/forum/index.php this forum site is GOLD for photography and especially Canons.

    I should clarify I have a compact camera I bought a sony cybershot slim camera years ago and its been good :) but I want one that will actually take great pictures. I am not looking for a professional DSLR just one that isnt a point and shoot and one that can actually zoom in. I'm going on an Alaskan cruise and I figured if this is my only time going (who knows what the future holds) I want to remember the pictures. I shall read around the link you sent :) thanks for the info!

    It sounds like a Canon Digital Rebel with the kit lens may be good your you. You can buy those at Walmart and Target for something like $600.

    The kit lens is an 18-55mm and will work of for all around use. They you can get the Canon 75-300mm zoom lens that is great for beginners and has a pretty good reach.
  17. I have it cropped and hanging up in my house.
