Some of you may have noticed the suspicious lack of photos in my last few posts
Truth be told, my camera is no more.
Nobody dropped it, no one gave it a bath, it didn't get buried in the back yard nor did it take a trip down the slide. It wasn't accidentally broiled, or frozen, or tumble dried but I'll assure you there are things in my home which have been. No. It simply quit working.
About three years ago I did insurmountable research before purchasing my cannon powershot S20 IS. It was HUGE, HEAVY, and blurred almost every shot I took one-handed. But in its day, it was the KING of cameras. If that doesn't show you how fast technology changes, I don't know what does.
So I'm looking for a new camera. I'm intrigued by canon's newest powershot series, although they cost more than I have. Jonathan has quite generously donated $100 of his saved-up spending money (birthday and Christmas gifts from family members) and I'm at least somewhat determined to stay under that limit.
Where's my spending money you ask? well, remember, I purchased Ruby. And that was all I had.
I'm also looking at Nikon's coolpix line, which looks less expensive. I am not very particular about our next camera, but I DO expect the following:
accepts SD cards (we already have them, and my computer has a slot for them)
has excellent stability (can handle a little shaking while shooting)
in the $100 range
(preferably) is rechargeable
is slim and lightweight
Currently checking out e-bay and overstock.com (both of which are thoroughly overwhelming) and also costco's website, although things are more expensive there.
So, your suggestions would be much appreciated.
