This time of year is not only filled w/ tastey foods & treats and  gift giving.It is also a time when many pictures are taken as families get together to observe & celebrate the holidays.
What type of camera is best for taking & saving these precious picotoral meomoriess?? 
Here are some tips & hints, whichever method you choose:

DIGITAL vs CONVENTIONAL CAMERAS
#1 
Digital photography allows experimentation—a lot. W/o the cost of film processing, the cost per image is greatly reducedDigital photography allows YOU to correct exposure or less than perfect content(  eyes closed, bad expression, etc.)When the image is stored electronically, you can easily retouch, edit, crop and share.  
#2
Angle Find extreme angles that create artistic interest An imageofachild can be moreinteresting& intimate taken from a” kid’s eye” point  - of - view.  Look for the new& unexpected.   
#3
Flash Take the time to shoot your subject with & w/o flash, and evaluate which looks best 
#4
 
 Red Eye
Use your camera’s red eye setting. A bright flash will go off before the regular flash, reducing the size of the pupil which helps to reduce red eye. Photo processing labs or even a red eye pen can also be helpful in reducing or eliminating redeye problems on printsMostof all, EXPERIMENT! Take the time to consult your owner’s manual and to explore all of your camera’s features. Learning & discovering tricks& techniques will go a long way to helping you create great works of art from your memories

I'm a firm believer in digital ..... just today I'm heading out to WalMart (where I bought my current digital) to ask the nice women in their camera dept to help me with a problem I'm having.  My problem is that it it doesn't work.

Yep, you got it...digital all the way!! Love my digital....it goes wherever I go! It's a Kodak Easy Share and fits perfectly in my jeans pocket or if I don't have a pocket, the strap is just the right length that I slip it up my arm and carry it from my shoulder. I just snap, snap, snap sometimes and then go back over them and delete the ones that didn't take. Digital cameras are such fun!!! I've had this, my first one, just over two years now and it's almost worn out!! Need to start looking for a new one soon, I guess!
Nancy, did you get your camera fixed and working now? I sure hope so!!

Hi Carol .... like I expected the super nice woman at WalMart said I simply needed new batteries...... she put in two new ones, played around and removed them.  I bought new "fanfcy" batteries and put them in at home...... Camera took one photo (of Harriet's candy) and then died.  grrrrrrrrrrr 
At least I THINK it's the camera.  It acts perfectly but when I try to load it into the computer I get a message saying it's empty.

Hmmmm....Nancy, that does sound like a problem with your camera and apparently it wasn't the batteries. I do hope you can find the problem and get it fixed soon!

Yes Carol ... and I'm unable to do anything -- It's a miracle when I take a photo.  And the kind people at WalMart have been too busy for me.  When things slow down a bit I'll try to get it fixed.   I miss it!!

We have had digital cameras for a long time and love them.  I have loads of pictures on my computer and my new ipad, and my husband has loads on his computer.  We only print out our favorites, but keep the others just in case.  Occasionally my husband puts a series (ie a trip) on a CD and then erases them from the computer. It keeps his memory open and not jammed up with a lot of extra photos.  We can pull up the photos from the CD any time we want.  Our cameras (Cannon and Nikon) have rechargeable batteries which is very easy.  He recently bought a Flip video camera and is having lots of fun with that.
Nancy, it sounds like you need a replacement on your camera...do you have a warranty?

Barbara, every so often, check those CDs or DVDs of your photos. They only last for about 8-10 yrs. You will need to copy and reburn your disks.

I had a conventional camera up until a year ago when it broke.  I got a new camera that is digital.  I do like being able to see my pictures immediately, but I'm having a hard time with the storage.  I've lost some pictures when my computer crashed, but am getting used to backing them up.  I guess change is hard.

Debbie - you can use a place like www.webshots.com free.  It's a super place to put many photos. 
Or you can pay a small amount per year and save thousands of photos.

My computer crashed about a year ago with all my pictures, but I have a friend with a son who is a whiz on computers,  and he saved all my pictures as well as my recipes and my address list. ( Thank you Jack!!!)   I have also saved my pictures on the Kodak site, but you have to pay for those or buy products.  We did our Christmas cards this year on the site, so that saved us any fee.  Yes, I know that CDs or DVDs only last for 8-10 years, but we may not last that much longer, so the problem is mute and up to our kids if they want those pictures.  When you get into your 70's, one begins to think a little differently.

If you are still using the battery charger or batteies that came with your camera you might need to replace it. Duracell or Energizer sells them.

Your memory card may need to be replaced. It isn't that expensive to get a new one.

I also am a digital convert.  I never took very good pictures nor many with a conventional camera.  The joke in my family was if you wanted a new camera let me use your old one, I lost count of how many cameras I broke in normal use!!!   Now with digital and a brief lesson with this latest (Ni*o*) & my old but great (H*) cameras, I have taken many, many pictures.  I have several awards even for my pictures all with digital.  Debi

Barbara, I, too, use rechargeable batteries in my digital. When I first bought my digital camera, I went through so many batteries! My sister suggested rechargeable, so that's what I did and it sure has saved me a lot of money!!
John, I, too, sometimes like black and white photos. It's neat that my camera has different options to choose from....color, black and white, and antique. I've used them all and experimented with them. Fun!!!
