I really appreciatie the subjects on this site. Most helpfull and very usefull.
But digital camara’s ?
Digital camera’s become a valid subject as soon as there is a Linux running on it.

This is what I like about “The Geek Stuff”. Going off Linux sometimes is good to reenergize ourselves ofcourse for Linux again :) .

I need to replace my old Canon SD630IS and I am torn between Panasonic Lumix zs7 and Canon SD1300IS. I saw many people raving about the razor-sharp pictures of Lumix zs7. But I also heard of its less-than-expected low-light shooting and its image stability not as good as SD630IS. I also heard that sz7 drains the battery quickly. I don’t know much about SD1300IS, I guess it is pretty much like my old plain SD630IS with more pixels.

I was expecting those cameras connected to Linux box or something,
but good tips, thanks

Why digital cameras? I guess everyone gets bored of computers sometimes.
My best camera would be the one with the widest angle lens that is the cheapest. A big LCD would be nice too.
