Hello, new member here!

Looking for advice on a camera ($300 or less) for indoor use, to take photo's of renovated rooms such as kitchens, basements etc.Ease of use and well-placed controls for the fingers of a 6 ft, 250 lb man (husband). 5 mp would provide enough clarity. The Kodak EasyShare V570 appears interesting because it's wide-angle, but it doesn't have an image stabilizer (I am a P&S type) and is at the top range of my budget. As a less expensive alternative, I'm considering the Kodak C533. I've been browsing for days now (reviewed about 30 camera's and hit my limit)and getting more confused as I'mtechnically challenged. I have a Kodak EasyShare Z740 and love it but won't give it up as I'll never see it again.

I have learned (the hard way) better to read reviews and ask questions than look at specs. Your suggestions and experiences would be overwhelmingly welcome!

Here's a tip...

So you are taking pictures of renovated rooms, to show off as examples of your work I assume?

Get a camera with stitch mode, all the Canon's have them.

Mount the camera on a tripod and take your pictures without flash. Rotate the camera on the tripod using the stitch mode to make a full panorama of your renovations.

It's not hard at all, and you can get by on a lower priced camera and a cheap $30 tripod. This will give a great result.

Here's a link that explains everything:http://www.kenrockwell.com/canon/photostitch.htm

What did you end up buying? You don't need IS for indoor shots that use flash. A tripod can, and should be used anyway even if you had IS.
