Nikon Zoom Touch 470 AF. My photos are usually excellent with it. I used 400 speed film with the flash off. I guess I should try some at night.

Night pics are easiest. I can get half decent ones during the day on my 44 but only because it is next to a window and I can get a ton of sunlight with the blinds open. At night, tank lights on, all other lights and especially the t.v. off. Also, do you have a tripod or something you could use to steady the camera? I find my 35 mm and digital cameras have difficulty capturing pics in focus when the fish are moving and my hand isn't exactly steady.

I'll try a few at night. I'm bummed!! I paid for the CD and got garbage.

For those of you with a digital camaras. May I ask what kind of camara you have? This one is supposed to be of my plump albino.

I have a Pentax Optio and love it... do yourself a favour and buy a LARGE memory card to start with. With my pentax on the best picture quality setting, I can store 512 pics on my 1GB compact flash card.

I have a pretty cheap one its a nikon coolpix, but my dad just got a nice nikon thats 6megapixels, i think, maybe its 8. Anyway I'm planning to use that for my pictures now. Its all the greatness of a film camera in digital. I wish it was mine. *drools*
