    Those are great pictures. I wouldn't be surprised (but then again, I'm new to this) that most digital cameras, except for the DSLRs may have that same problem. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I did order the 717 on Monday night after thinking long and hard about this and possibly geting a used DSLR but I think those pictures back up my decision. Thanks to everyone for answering my questions. I'll be getting it on Friday or next Monday.

    My first camera, other than some junky point and shoot from Wal Mart

    Hi! The Sony 717 is a fantastic camera . I use it and i think its a very easy to use camera, but it as some problems....like Grain that some times apeears when the light is poor or using to much zoom.

    You can see some of my photos taken whit that camera....maybe it would help you decide ....

    I'm thinking that I am going to go with the 717 and upgrade in a few years perhaps. It would be nice to have a DSLR but at the moment I'm tight on cash. Also I won't have to lug around any lenses.

    LOL, I bought one for 550 off Ebay, the camera never came and the lady disappeared that sold it to me, but PayPal was able to recover 480 from her. That was a real setback since she had 50 + reviews and no bad ones. I have had other experiences, if you do buy one off there, be careful and buy their insruance.
    See that's why. Anyone know of a place to buy refurbished or used Canon cameras from a solid retailer not an individual?

    Don't be. I've bought all of my camera crap except for the camera itself off eBay. Never had a problem!

    If you're very, very lucky you can get a D30 with warranty at eBay. Those are mostly sold by 2nd hand dealers. I even saw a new, unused D30 a couple of weeks ago. However, it cost alomost as much as the 300D (Digital Rebel).

    PS: I can agree with the opinions above. Get a DSLR. Even if it's used camera with a cheap Canon lens--you'll play in a whole different league.
