First post, please don't kill me...

I'm interested in starting cosplay photography, and I'm interested in purchasing a good digital camera in order to get started. I don't have enough to buy a professional/SLR camera, and I'd just like to start small. Does anyone have any ideas for a good one? I'd like to spend up to 200 for as many megapixels I can find. Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the posting side of things. ^^

http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=82941 is a fairly recent thread for this question. A post in there by staereo points to more than a few others. The answer for a good camera changes about as frequently as the wind, but the answer for finding the right one for you probably won't. It's admittedly hard to do a search for this topic in the forum, since the right keywords are probably going to come up in a lot of threads.

Mods, any thoughts about whether maybe a sticky thread about the topic of how to find the right camera for an individual might be justified?

staereo's posts are some the best ones for advice.

Awww, thank you. You're far too kind!

I feel that we are blessed in this community to have as many intelligent, crafty, and intuitive photographers as we do. Sometimes we all differ in opinions and preferences, but I would have to say that there is a very comprehensive level of photography knowledge here.

Respectfully,
Bruce

I think that is a great idea! Something about recommended cosplay photography equipment (or what to look for in different price/performance ranges of camera).

I went ahead and stickied the other thread about cameras. :)
