If you are not a professional photographer but still looking for a good quality camera that will not end you up broke, the Sony DSC H10 is the way to go. I myself don't need one for professional use, but from time to time, I like taking photos for the fun of it, and sometimes editing them with photoshop, and the DSC H10 was the best choice.
The camera is not one of those slim digital- 9th grade trip photos- one, you really do feel that you have a professional device in your hands. The quality of the photos is indisputable and the specifications are as follows :
8.1-megapixel Super HAD CCD captures enough detail for photo-quality 16 x 22-inch printsCarl Zeiss 10x optical zoom lens; Smart Zoom feature3.0-inch large Clear Photo LCD Plus display; Face DetectionSony Double Anti-Blur Solution; in-camera retouching31 MB internal memory; capture images to Memory Stick Duo/Pro Duo mediaA strong feature is the ability to capture moving objects, for example I went to watch a soccer game, and the "Sports" mode along with the zoom got great quality photos for the players on the field.
