    I want a camera for Christmas

    I really want to start taking pictures again, it's something I haven't really done since my injury. I have played around w/ a friends and most pics ended up w/ fingers in them!I'm going to start fooling around w/ some different types to see which one I think will be best.My question is directed mainly @ quads.. which one(s) have you found to be best for our hands-easiest to use?Durable too.

    Thanx-Shannon

    I don't have one, but when I was looking for one a year or so ago there was an Olympus one that had a plug-in extension strap with a button on the end of it... or it was a remote button... I thought that was a good idea for a quad... my gf has a digital cam and when I take pics with it my biggest challenge is holding it (no fingers in the shot) and then steading it... my thought is with a remote you could hold it in your mouth and poke the button with your tongue, lips, or mouth thus avoiding having to fumble with hitting the on camera button which for me usually cause me to shake the camera a bit

    This has been discussed a lot in the past. If you search for "quad and camera" you will tons of information! I am a para, and bought a new camera last year. WHile I don't have the finger dexterity issues, I fould them helpful for me as well in chosing one. The big suggestions for quads were to get a remote for the shutter, and some sort of tripod/mount.

    Here is 2 that are fairly recent. But older ones will be helpful for tips, even though specific models may be obsolete.
