Due to money shortages I'm still stuck with a Finepix 1400, which is just good enough for taking snapshots for ebay auctions. But I was fantasizing about getting something a little better for Solstice and browsed the ebay auctions out of curiousity. Found this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2967785246 for a 950. It was tempting when I found it an hour ago, with the bid at $125 but not so tempting at the final price it sold for. Plus I went and dug up a web review and found it doesn't have USB, it uses the serial port, which is odd. But I'd like to get the most bang for the buck in something with as good a quality as this, that I might pick up refurbed on ebay for under $200. ( I figure I can still sell the Finepix 1400 for maybe $75 and make up some of it - it's a useful camera for reasonable quality ebay snapshots ). Can some of you please recommend something as decent as the Coolpix 950, that I might find refurbed, like on Ebay, for under $200, and that uses rechargeable NIMH AA cells or something, and has a USB port? And if you could point me to a review with samples, I'd appreciate it too. Tom, are you still around here? I was gonna ask you too but lost your email address. -- Yours In Liberty, Melissa - Colorado, U.S.A.
