I think there is some really great information above in regards to SLRs and their benefits. However, after reading the first post in this thread, an SLR just seems like too much camera and certainly more than what the poster wants or needs.

My thoughts are that he is looking for something that will be point and click but also provide good quality pictures. I would also think that if he plans on taking some vacation photos and getting some flexability out of his camera then he would want something with decent optical zoom as well. Also, I would think camera size plays an important role as well and something that can fit in a large purse would probably be the max size.

That being said. I like these three cameras.
- Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5k
-Canon Powershot A520
-Sony DSC S60

The Panasonic is the best "bang for your buck" in my mind as it has 12x optical and plenty of options other than just auto shot if you are looking to get in to the details of picture taking a bit more. The Panasonic also has a somewhat slim profile even though it has 12x optical zoom. The only knock I have on this camera is the lack of an external flash "adapter". The built in flash will give you about 8-10 feet of range like most digitals these days.

The Canon and Sony are very similar in performance and price and offer the more commonplace 3-4X optical zoom. I threw these two in here as they were the ones i was looking at when I was making the same descision of what to get a year or so ago. I ended up going with the Sony as I thought it captured pictures just a bit quicker than the Canon but I think you can't go wrong with either one. Also, both of these should be in the sub $200 range right now.

If I was in the market to buy another camera right now it would be the Panasonic hands down. I just think you can't beat the performance for that price.

I would go check out the cameras in store before you buy just so you can try them out and see what you like. If you do end up getting a camera that takes AA batteries, do yourself a favor and get a good set of rechargable batteries.

Some good sources of information --   -- the customer reviews are great.

Thank you.

Hello all,

I am interested in giving this game a try and was curious if anyone might have a buddy code that they have not used yet.

I have been playing a priest in a raiding guild in WoW for some time now and have enjoyed it greatly. However, my schedule has changed so that I no longer can play for the regularly scheduled 3-4 hours needed to raid.

I can still play for 2-3 hour blocks at random times so I thought that DDO might be a better fit at this time. Also, a new game always has the added bonus of fresh content to explore. I did play some D&D when I was younger so I am not a total noobie when it comes to the basic background and such.

For those of you that are playing, what are you thoughts on the current game and also where it may be headed? Thank you in advance for any replies and hopefully a buddy code:)

For gaming the AMD 64 3500+ wins hands down over the 820. Every benchmark/review I have seen points to the 3500+ being a better performer for gaming. Google it if you would like to see for yourself.

Just a helpful hint for those who will be starting up soon -- stay on the newbie island until you are level six. Also, do all of the quests that you can find while there.

Ok server names are up at the official boards. Zinckiwi was correct, they are named after old EQ zones. Any thoughts on which one you all want to join?

I was thinking Najena.

Bucking the WoW thread trend..I wanted to see if any other CGers would be interested in trying to meet up on a common server for EQ2. As far as I know, there hasn't been a server list released yet so any consensus would have to happen on the 9th.

I have a friend who will be playing a scout and I will be playing a priest (defiler), both going ratonga so Freeport. It would be great to have a pre built base of people we could look up and group with.

Any interest?
