I use a Sony Cybershot for my photos.  You can see what I do with it by looking at my last blog.  Can pick one up on Amazon for about 100.00.  It has different modes, macro, and video.  I've had mine a couple years and never a problem.  One suggestion though, is to invest in rechargable batteries.  It will save you in the long run!

I just bought an Olympus Stylus 1050 SW -- 10mp, shockproof, waterproof, and freezeproof.  It's as good for outdoor herping adventures as it is for it's macro and supermacro close-up shots, and I have nothing bad to say so far.  Picked it up on buy.com for under $150.  Good luck!

Too a point, of course...  but still!  It'd be perfect in the event that you dropped it from a great height into a deep-freezer after emerging from the swimming pool...  You know, like if you came in to photo-inventory your feeder rodents...  or something...

Look on eBay for a Canon EOS 20D
I love mine, paid $1500 for it, you can get one used for a couple hundred I think.

I used in most of my pics on this site a Kodak Easy Share Z812IS with 8mp, 12x optical zoom it was a very great camera...it was $250.00 at Best Buy.  Now they have a newer version I saw at Walmart for 379.00 dollars it's twice as good.  It is 12.5mp and 24x optical zoom..with many different modes on it. I'm sure it would be a great camera as well. I had to give mine up though and pawn it so I could get my snake Diamond to the vet in April...I miss it so much.   Good luck in finding a great camera.

Canon Xs is reasonable in price. Imo its the best dslr for your money. Slr's are so versitle and well worth the money. The nikon is another classic.
