Hey Lamar, well, we do have a "sticky" thread at the top of the forum where people can ask questions about cameras:viewtopic.php?f=1&t=332
The problem is that people are always kind of drive-by questioners with cameras. They'll drop in and say "Look at this camera on sale at wal-mart, is it good enough?" -- it's not a bad question, exactly, but it's not a well-asked question. The reason is that sometimes a cell phone camera is "good enough" and sometimes you need a nice DSLR.
What I'd really prefer that people do is start a build thread. It doesn't matter if you ever finish your build, or even start building anything. What would be great is if people started a build thread specifying their specific goals and materials they want to digitize, their budget, etc. From that, people can help determine what kind of cameras are best.
Still, a camera section is a good idea and one suggested often. I will keep thinking about it for the near future.
