Best digital camera for me?

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Randy Pavatte, Jul 13, 2004.

  1. Hi. I'm new to this site, and hope someone can offer me some advice.
    I use a Webtv, and I understand some digital cameras are compatable with
    my system, so long as they have an RCA video out plug.
    What I'm wondering is, given the huge selection of these cameras on the
    market now, which is the best I can get for use with my Webtv?
    My only real intended use is to take detail pics of my hobby, building
    plastic models.
    I enjoy sharing pics of my completed projects with friends on the net.

    I have a pretty good 35mm camera outfit, but it has proven to be too
    complicated to work with for this purpose, and the results have been
    very poor.

    Any advice on this subject would be appreciated, and please feel free to
    use "dumbed-down" terminology. I'm a rank novice so I won't mind. :)
    Thank you very much.

    Randy

    PS: I want to stay within a realistic price point....maybe around $400?

    We're living in a world that's been pulled over our eyes to blind us
    from the truth. Where are you, white rabbit?

    You should look at cameras with about 3-4 MP and a good closeup
    capability. Other than that, most cameras would have the features you
    require.

    If he's going to use the RCA-out plug, a 1 MP camera would be more than
    adequate.
