What is a good camera for bike riding please.cyclingforhealth

I have been on my new bike twice now. It is amazing how much different the world looks on two wheels. I have thought that it would be cool to document my weight loss journey through pictures to help motivate. I don't know alot about digital cameras. I was wondering if there is a good digital I could use to document my journey. I figure I might as well share this journey with some of you people. I am a little gun shy to post my face or body. I notice few of you do that too. That is good. I have a good reputation in my community and I do not want to reveal myself on the internet. I do not trust the internet really. The picture stories here are wonderful. Thank you much.

Small and easy to handle. I have the 4300 that has 4 megapixels but the 3300 would be fine, too, at 3 megapixels or so. Should run you $350 or less if you shop smart. Try here: http://www.bwayphoto.com
Great link. Thank you.cyclingforhealth

don't buy at broadway photoglobalhelipimp

don't buy from broadyway photo. i lived in new york for
these past four months, and did not hear very good things
about them at all. if you're going to buy a digital camera
online, i recommend either:

www.bhphotovideo.com

or

www.adorama.com

can't go wrong- Nikon makes a really sweet Coolpix series- they range from something like a Coolpix 995 to a Coolpix 5700. I've had the Coolpix 5000 for about a year, and don't really have many complaints with it (i'm a photo major) for the price of the camera. check it out.

I personally feel betrayed by your (s)prank. I went out of my way to help take part in your inspirational journey. It was a dirty lie the whole time? How can you just play with my emotions?

"I am a little gun shy to post my face or body. I notice few of you do that too. That is good. I have a good reputation in my community and I do not want to reveal myself on the internet. I do not trust the internet really."

I now switch my vote to the spankster. The "internet paranoia" was the give-away. This would be his twisted idea of a joke. Quite juvenile, we can all agree.

"The pictures and stories here are wonderful?" How gay is that?

Forget digital and get an Olympus Stylus Epic. $80 at B&H. The Stylus is smaller, lighter, and more durable than a digital camera, and it produces higher-quality photographs. Plus, it's weatherproof (what happens if your digital camera gets caught in the rain?) and closes up into a small clamshell which you won't even notice in your jersey pocket. All for hundreds of dollars less than digital.
Yeah, but I think he wanted the ability to see the photos andFez

share them via computer in a real timely manner. A bit hard to do if you have to run out and get them developed. A bit more expensive, too.

Sure you can get them developed for big $$ and they'll even throw in a photo CD.

My experience with getting point and shoot pictures developed and put on a photo CD has been real poor. The paper photos are good, but the CD photos look terrible.
