My old point-and-shoot digital camera went bust. This blog is much more interesting – both for me and you – when I can share photos of what I’m messing with.
I realize that most people are able to take snap shots with their phones nowadays. I have stubbornly resisted owning a cell phone. I’ve had them in the past, and the thing just feels like a tether. Every waking hour I’m looking at the phone, seeing if someone called, emailed, or sent a text. It’s a nonstop dance of “Where’s my phone?” “Is my phone turned on?” “Is my phone set to silent?” “How much battery do I have left?”
No thank you. I manage just fine without one.
So any one out there have recommendations on a digital camera?
I’d like one that is fairly priced. Doesn’t need to do anything fancy, just take photos of good enough quality to publish on the web. In fact, more gizmos and fancy features are probably a turn-off. I’m not interested in studying what I can get out of this thing: I just want to point it at something, press a button to take the photo, and not have to repeat the process multiple times to end up with something not too blurry to share.
It may be nice to shoot video one day, but I’d want to set up a tripod to do that, worry more about lighting and other things. I’m not looking for the ability to do that with this camera. I’ll explore my options when/if I choose to pursue that.
Something simple, reliable, and easy to use.
When I go look on Amazon there’s so many features and gizmos, I haven’t settled on what’s good enough for me and what isn’t.
So: any opinions out there on a decent point-and-shoot camera?
