Farewell Camera::

Picture via Pinterest
During my Thanksgiving post, my Cannon camera died. I wanted to finish my post with more snap shots but, my camera failed. I knew last week while photographing some deer, that the zoom feature wasn't working. Not, that my zoom was all that great to begin with. My Hubby right away, told me to go out and purchase a new one. Well, it's not that easy. Here's my list of prerequisites:
  1.   Quick response
  2.  Advanced point and shoot
  3.  Low light situations
  4.  At least 10 mega pixels
  5.  Compact
  6.  Optical and Mechanical lenses
        Sounds like I know my stuff. Really I'm still learning :)

         I'm not sure on Cannon or Nikon but, that doesn't matter.
     So, I'm on the market for a new camera. I thought I would be thrilled at the fact of buying a new one. Have you seen the camera prices lately? This will be a early Christmas present for me. I figure, I might as well make the investment since I need to buy a new camera anyway. I guess?
        Please, if you have any suggestions I would love some advice in this area. It's not a easy decision to make nor, a hasty one. Thanks guys!

Hi Liz, Wishing you a fabulous day tomorrow with family and friends. I have a Nikon Coolpix P90 12.1 and like it a lot. With my limited knowledge of cameras it works for me. Although it's not a camera you can pop in your purse and run. I think I am ready to graduate to a SLR camera but kind of scared. Not sure if I am ready for the learning curve yet and learning all the lens stuff. :) I was watching some famous photographer (forget the name) on television the other day and she was touting how wonderful the Iphones are for photography....hmmmm. Probably the best shots come from the photographer....not the camera. :) You take wonderful pictures!
