OK....I'm in search of a camera that takes really good pictures for extracting.....BUT....don't want to break the bank! Any recommendations? Any really good point and shoot ones out there? I really don't want to have to LEARN how to use the darn thing!! LOL

I have a recommendation for a little & handy P&S that I carry in my purse everywhere. You never know when you may see something you just have to capture, and this one takes great shots, and good macro shots, too. Canon Power Shot SD1300 IS.

See the review on this camera here (http://reviews.cnet.com/digital-cameras/canon-powershot-sd1300-is/4505-6501_7-33975897.html). I think I paid around $100 for it at BestBuy.

If you have more $$ to spend on a DSLR, I recommend the Nikon D40. But then you may get into the trap of "lens envy" and you'll wind up about a thousand dollars poorer, though with a couple great lenses to supplement the kit lens.

Great review that convinced me here (http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d40.htm). I don't know if it's still available, but I got mine through Costco.
