Need a beginner's camera suggestion

Postby creative_cutie » Mon Oct 04, 2010 11:36 am

I had a Panasonic Lumix that I loved but Sophia broke it when she was like 18 months. I ended up getting a kodak Easyshare and I haven't been impressed with it. But at the time that was the only camera I could afford. I'm looking for a better camera. I'm a pretty beginner to photography but I'm learning some of the ropes and I'm looking for a camera that will allow me to capture my daughter while she is moving...because she is always on the move. I'm tired of blurry pictures.

Any suggests? Preferably something that is not the most expensive camera out there.

Thanks!!!
