I need Digital Camera advise!!
( kills the battery too quickly ).
I'll have to buy myself a digital camera now, eventually. I do not know a thing about digital cameras except that a person can use their computer to make prints and insert the photos into pages of text.
I figure some LinuxForum members must be quite handy with digital cameras as well as computers and can offer some advice as to which cameras are good and which cameras are bad.
As usual this old fossil needs all the help that he can possibly get!! Thanks!

Here's a Digital Camera Buying Guide that might help with your purchase:

Thank You, Gentlemen!!
An amatuer photographer has also suggested that I look into buying a Fuji S 700
I can envision future headaches trying to absorb the ins and outs of digital photography into my ancient brain.
When you decide which camera you want take a look at F-Spot. I have been using it for about a year. It lets you tag photos with labels for people, place, events or anything else you wish. It makes it very eassy to search and filter your photos.
I think most importantly, you need to make sure you get a USB Camera, they seem to work flawlessly on Fedora and Gentoo. I use a Samsung Digimax S500, it isn't the worlds best Camera but it works rather well.
Assuming you're buying a digital camera that uses a flash card (I don't know of any others), you can access your photos within Linux with zero effort and no extra software using a $12 card reader.
When I take film to get it developed I always get a picture CD but I never put the pictures into my computer. F-spot, flash card, card reader - wiki here I come - I have aspirin ready!!
I've got about 50 pages of material to digest already. Maybe I'll be ready to purchase a camera by Christmas time or sometime in January.
