Creative webcam go was my first digital camera, it was a webcam that also took 320x480 pictures didn't need to be connected to computer.
My first True Digital camera was a Kodak 710 I think. It was a 5.0 MP camera. It had 10x optical zoom and an even further D zoom (400x I think).
This camera had a SLR style body but wasn't an SLR.
The camera took excellent pictures, had 32Mb internal memory. This was a great camera.
It had a manual mode that gave access to most of the settings (Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO) - this was a great camera, the pictures were very vivid.
Only thing I didn't like was the auto focus. This was useless on very close subjects. I could see it go in and out of focus and stay out of focus.
The 710 was indeed a good camera - that large lens really helped capture good quality images.
It came to the market at the end of 2006, and could use AA batteries - handy if your battery died miles from a shop!
Thanks for the submission David.
