Hello to everyone.

I'm looking for opinions on a new or even used digital camera that would mostly be used for landscapes. I'm had alot of fun with my Canon SD100 but would like to see some additional "pop" from my pics. I think I need to jump to the 6-8 MP range. Money is kinda tight so I was thinking I could go used,,, maybe from Adorama or B&H. Does anyone have some opinions ? Again the camera would mostly be used for landscapes.

Ken-

Take a look at the 24-120mm Kodak P-880. Here in the USA, it perhaps one of the best bargain cameras for landscapes.

What do you mean by "pop"? Sharper? More saturation? More contrast? ...

Hello.

Additional sharpness and vibrant color would be great.

Ken-

If you desire added sharpness and more vibrant colors, the Kodak P-880 can provide both when used on a tripod.

Have you tried an unsharpening mask and increasing saturation with a photo editor? Or increasing the sharpening and saturation settings in your current camera?

If not, I'd strongly suggest doing so before sinking any money into another camera.
