Default taking good pictures

Ok, How do most of you take your pics? when I take mine they come out dull and cheap looking. I want them to be clear and attracting. Maybe I need to buy a new camera. Anybody know what type of camera is great for under 50.00? Thanks

yikes! a GOOD camera under fifty bucks? i looked at some best buy cameras for you; for a good one, you'll have to spend at least $80-90 dollars. i have a fujifilm, i got it last year in may for my birthday,, picked it out myself, it hasn't failed me yet, but it came with a huge price tag-FUJIFILM - FinePix 10.0-Megapixel Digital Camera - Silver - Z200fd
tips when looking at a camera-
at least 8, minimum 7 megapixels, to get a crisp image.
hope this helps!

No suggestions on cameras from me (mine are both much more then $50... one is a DSLR) but for good pictures, I agree... no flash! Natural light! If you can't get enough good light try to make a DIY softbox... I think there's info in the sticky post at the top of this board... otherwise google DIY softbox or DIY lighting and you'll find some great stuff!
Also, make sure you have a very steady hand or even better, use a tripod or set camera on something (like a stack of books) if you do that and use a 2 second timer on the shutter (check your camera manual for that) then you won't have problems with blurring. Another way to get colors that are truer to real life is to set the white balance in your camera (see your manual for that too) a custom white balance would provide the best color.
Last, don't forget about editing! Good editing can bring out the colors and sharpness! There are some great free editing sites and downloads you can get. (I used paint.net... a free download before buying software)

like everyone else has said, try taking pictures outside. find a white sheet or blanket to lay down. i have found my pics look the best with the natural lighting.

If mine come out dull or I have a lighting problem I adjust it in photoshop so it looks like it should have originally. I have a 7 megapixel digital camera, one of those little ones that fits in your pocket. Takes create pictures, but the only camera that has ever gotten the colors I wanted is my manual 35mm and it's just too troublesome to develop the film and scan in the pictures. Digital is the way to go!
