About my camera by Tony Marsh


external image tony2.jpg

I have a Konica Minolta Dimage Z3 camera which I bought about christmas time last year
Its a 4 megapixel camera with 12 x optical zoom and an anti shake feature
I bought a 1 gigabyte memory chip for it - I hate the way when you buy a digital camera the memory chip it comes with is useless!
You can check out lots of my photos at my wikispace page http://swampy.wikispaces.com/Oct05_Jan06

Please add your name and information about your camera to this page.

I have a Ricoh CaplioR2 5 mp 4.8 X wide zoom lens Optical zoom. 256 mb memory card. SD.
I've probably taken about 150 photos. I've printed at KMart and, with help, on a printer. I have difficulty with the printing programs.

I have a Nikon Coolpix 4100 4mp3x optical zoom, internal menery and 128mb memory card SD. I have taken approx 110 photos.
I have printed these photo's at Harvy Norman but since then I have purchased a printer so that I can print my own photo's.
Bob Cox
My camera is a Kodak DX6440. It has 4.23 MP picture resolution and 4X Optical 3.2Digital Zoom. The camera has 16Mb Internal Memory and I have inserted a 128MB SD card. Although I have taken about 120 photos, I have not had much success with printing and emailing the photos. Hence my interest in this course.
