    access to compact flash cards does this use them .If not any recomendations
    on what cameras do use them .Many thanks.

  4. It's Kodak.
    That alone would keep me from purchasing it.

  5. Fuji has a camera called A70 in addition to Canon's A70?
    Weird.

  7. Nope.

    Your best bets are (in no particular order):

    -Sony
    -Panasonic
    -Canon
    -Nikon
    -Olympus
    -Fujifilm

    These are to be avoided:

    -Toshiba
    -Hewlett Packard (aka "HP")
    -Gateway
    -Agfa
    -Samsung

    -Steve.

  9. The canon does, the newest sony does (the F828), and i think nikon many also
    use CF.
    Also, there are minolta models that are decent, that also take CF.

    However, you should go for quality of camera before memory considerations.
    You can always get a 128meg card (whatever format) for cheap (sometimes
    under $75 american).

    In the end, the media you store the pictures on doesnt matter much, the
    camera takes the photos. The LENS focus's light, the IMAGE SENSOR records
    the image... The memory card just stores the file until you put it on your
    computer's hard drive.

    Hi Dickydoo,

    Well as the name implies, yes, it is very 'easy to share' with that camera.
    Very Friendly. :)

    The software, camera, and other items make the camera very easy to use and
    print, email, or use on the web. The images are great and I am sure you
    would enjoy the camera.

    Actually, if you have not bought a camea yet, I suggest visiting local
    dealers to see if they can provide a hands on review. If you have a media
    card to try, bring it with you so you can later compare images. The CX6330
    uses a MMC/SD card. Try all the cameras as that is the best way to review
    and know what you are getting.

    Talk to you soon,

    Ron Baird
