Don't know much about them myself but my advice would be to go for a mid range, flash, zoom (funds permitting!). I think the rule is the more pixels the better the quality but they're all much the same so any well known make would be OK I'm guessing. That's how I did it and I have no complaints.

Wargamers like to paint their privates!!

Its the pixel thing that has me confused.

Some experts on the web say they are not that big a deal ???

Some experts say different ???? Do i need face identification ? (for taking pictures of miniatures ?)

Hey Z ... did u pick up the digi camera from AlanB?

Generally, for what we use camera's for, and most people in everyday life (holiday snaps, weddings, etc) any model would do. Here's a perfect one from Argos ...

>>> Kodak Easyshare 12mp's

... for not to much monies ... $50. They all come with easy-to-use software for copying images from the camera to your computer and resizing tools so the images are not too big to upload to the website. Hope this helps.

Argos have a nice intro to Digi's ...

>>> http://www.argos.co.uk/static....022.htm

... which might help as well ... Walts

To Pavlov : Thanks again for the camera ! smile

To Balrog : Cheers for the info.

All i need now is a SD card and i can start experimenting with some miniatures.
