I'm looking for any experience anyone has with having Nikon repair a camera -- and weighing that against putting the repair money toward a new camera body. If I want to go with something new, I need help with selection. More details within! [more inside]

My husband is in the market for a new camera. There's one camera store in town that carries the cameras he's considering. The camera store is asking $100 more than Amazon. Should he tell the camera store what Amazon is charging? (I.e., try to haggle?) [more inside]

Camera Noob Filter - I like taking pictures and I find that I like taking them a lot lately. My boyfriend is in a band and I love taking pictures of their shows but I can't get great shots in low - light with my Sony point and shoot. Any suggestions on a camera that isn't the full-blown DSLR but not point and shoot that will give me great low light shots as well daylight shots?
Saw a commercial this morning about 7AM EST - I think it was on the Today show - it was apparently a camera fixed on a guy's face who was skydiving. I saw in on my HD TV - it was a beautiful, crystal clear, professional looking shot. The guy pulled his parachute, and then they showed this camera, and the tag-line was "Be a professional" or something. What was the name of the camera? Did anyone catch this?
I am putting together a proposal for my English class. It proposes that cameras should be required in meat processing plants all along the "dissemble" line, and broadcast "to the public somehow," (probably via web-feed or something) . Is there such a thing, in any law, in any jurisdiction (even outside of the U.S.)? [more inside]
Ok this is may sound like a weird one... Basically I'm building an outdoor enclosure for a panning/tilting webcam that has IR lighting built into it. It was going to be all sides Lexan, to keep things simply and neat looking. I learned, midstream of course, that the Lexan/Plexiglass/glass all reflect IR light like crazy so you just see a beautiful ring of IR lights and not what's outside the box when viewing the stream. I'm told a UV filter might work, embedded in the front of the enclosure. The challenges are: [more inside]

Can you please recommend your favourite Digital Video Camera? Key features: inexpensive, compatible to quickly upload the data to a mac, internal microphone. A friend is planning to record interviews and possibly some classroom activities, not record a feature film. it doesn't need a whole lot of bells and whistles; bonus points if it's small-ish. thank you!

My choices for cameras have been limited by my requirement that it has to have a flexible display, such as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50, or the newly released Canon 60D. But maybe I'm thinking the wrong way... Is there a way to plug a portable video screen into my camera, and achieve the same viewing flexibility? [more inside]
Yes, it's true, there are still Luddites out here using 35mm film. The local concern which still develops films charges a queen's ransom to do so. Can anyone recommend a mail-in film developing lab which does good quality work, is reliable and is at least somewhat reasonable as far as price? (Costco in this area has stopped taking film...sigh). (can't think of any snowflakes to add).

I read some time ago about new point and shoot cameras that are great for taking pictures at night. I believe they didn't have the same mirror system that typical cameras have, thereby making non-flash pictures turn out clearer. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I'm hoping to find a great camera to take out at night to take pictures without annoying people with a flash.

Just a quick dumb question I can't find answered anywhere else: I have a videocamera with 37.5mm lens threads. A filter I want to buy online has 37mm threads (and that spec seem more common in general). There's a 37.5mm-to-37mm stepdown ring available elsewhere, but it costs twice as much as the filter. Is that 0.5mm really enough to need the stepping ring?
