I'd like to upgrade my household's photography capabilities with a new camera and I am torn between a low-end DSLR and the new mirrorless micro-4/3rds cameras. I'm torn between the world of possibilities in the DSLR space vs. the more portable aspects of mirrorless cameras. [more inside]

What digital camera offers mostly physical controls?

I'd like to get my 9 year old daughter a new digital camera to call her own. She's had all my cast-offs from over the years but I noticed her favorite is a 2006-era Olympus with all physical controls. Are there any up-to-date pocket cameras with more physical dials than software menu systems? [more inside]

LCD on a 35mm Film Camera?

Is there a 35mm film camera that also has an LCD? My mother likes the idea of looking at an LCD instead of using the view finder, but doesn't want to depart from the world of 35mm film! She just needs a point-and-shoot, nothing fancy (under ~$150). Does such a hybrid camera exist?

is there any reason not to buy a new camera off of eBay?

Are there reasons to buy a new camera from a retail outlet like B&H instead of picking up the same new/"sealed"/etc. digital camera off eBay, if the price is right? Are there any unusual downfalls to getting cameras off eBay? (I'm considering the Canon G11 or S90 at the moment.)

Ho to make photoshop save photos?

How can I save JPG images in Photoshop CS so that a digital camera can read them? Cheap crappy software can do this easily, but no matter what file settings I use in Photoshop, I've never been able to get any of my digital cameras to be able to read any JPG that was written by Photoshop - I have to load and re-save them with other piece of software to get them to work. Surely there is a way to make Photoshop save JPG files that cameras can read? [more inside]
