I work for a general contractor and use a digital camera frequently for pictures to send to subcontractors or for our web site. I have a Canon A570IS and it does a great job. I haven't printed larger than 4 x 6 yet but I would imagine it would be fine. It's simple and very easy to use both indoors or out. Canon also has the A720IS model. Both are reviewed on this site. Check them out.Good luck,Steve-Seattle..
Are you looking for a point and shoot? The cameras mantioned will work fine. or if you are looking for some other camera, can you tell us more about what kind of images you need to make. Do you need flash often? Do you need real wide angle or long telephoto?.
I need a decent camera for use at work. We are a building materialscompany and I often need to take pics of our installations - houses,office blocks - internal and external. We occasionally use these foradvertising, brochures etc so will often get to A4 size and need aresolution of 300dpi at least.I'm not the greatest photographer in the world but take decent shots.Can someone suggest a decent camera for my company to go for?.

Mostly exteriors of offices and houses - during the day. Nothing extravagant but something that shows off the exterior. occasionally do interior shots but again always during the so flash is not required most of the time. Ideally point and shoot woudl be better for me...
I'm quite pleased with my Canon S5 which is my first digital camera. It runs about $350 but has the hot shoe if you ever need more powerful flash..
It zooms out to 432mm, so distant shot are no problem. It has image stabilization, but a cheap monpod is very helpful for telephoto shots regardless of your specific camera selection.ngk20000..
I have a Canon S3 IS. In my view such a SLR-like model would be overkill for the application here. There are a great many compacts that should be able to fill the bill. Here is a link to a discussion of some of the higher quality compacts -.
After you've worked out a short list also check user reviews. There are a lot of user reviews over on the Amazon site..
You get to the 300dpi via Photoshop or similar image editing program when you resize from the camera's lower native resolution of say 72dpi. If shot-to-shot times are not of great importance you can get any camera that has a lens starting at 28mm in 35mm film camera terms (that's 18mm for entry level DSLRs ... 14mm for Olympus). Be sure to buy one that has a viewfinder and a hot shoe for a more powerful accessory flash gun. (Canon G9, s5IS,Panasonic FZ50, Fuji 9100)..
If you're going to be taking a lot of shots or if you don't want to use flash, it would be better to get a DSLR..
