Digital Camera so many choices

Real Estate Agent with Lancaster Real Estate Sales

Does anyone have any reccommendations on a decent digital camera? i went to a class today and the photographer was pushing a Cannon DSLR rebel what he said made sense but the cheapest i could find was $420

Is there any others less than $300 that can do a good job getting alot in the picture? Help so confused.

Head out to Ebay and buy a Kodak V570.  Great wide angle lens.  Small camera and works great for real estate.  You can't find one new in the stores but Ebay is a great source.

You need wide angle... lots of wide angle.  There is a specific Kodak that isn't made any more...  Personally, I picked up a Nikon P5100 and an accessory wide angle Nikon lens.  Not really cheap, but not nearly the cost fo a DSLR.  It can use an accessory flash, and has a 12mp sensor.  I'm in under $450.  It has a lot of flexibility... and isn't as big as a DSLR.

I have a Kodak Easy Share Z710 and it works great. It's not that expensive but packs a great punch. I have photos hanging in a commercial building that were taken with this camera. It did an amazing job!

I have a Canon PowerShot SD870 (pictures and video). I'm very happy with this camera. You should be able to get this camera for less than $300. Hopefully, this helps with your decision.

I would go with a Canon Powershot like this one at bestbuy.  I have been using an older model for a while and have been very please.  Its not as nice of a camera as the one Lane is suggesting but I am sure it will get the job done.

thanks for all your comments Just trying not to spend alot as I am not a big picture person even on trips. I dont have alot of listings and not alot of high end listings. Heck some dont even deserve a picture :( but if i am going to buy a camera i may as well get something decent that i will have for when i do get those million dollars listings.!!
