(Capt'n John) Cameras and quilting go together.  Whether you are looking for forms, designs, tile work, photographing your local quilt show, or taking a picture of your quilt to upload, you want a camera that fits your needs.  So if you have a camera you like tell us by adding a comment.  Give us a short reason why you like it and a general price range. 

I purchased the digital camera above for the Baltic Cruise.  I wanted the 10x Optical zoom because 3x on most cameras don't work if you are on a ship and far from the object.  It's a Panasonic DMC-TZ5.  I have been very happy with the zoom, the image stabilizer, 3" hi resolution screen, you can zoom while using the movie feature, and the quality of the pictures.  Get the TZ5 not the 4 to get the updated movie ability. The camera cost about $250 but with a better battery, a tripod, and larger memory it ended up at about $350.  I believe they are cheaper now.  The only negative so far is that it is not a small purse camera.  It will fit in a pocket but not comfortably.

Okay, what do you like?
