View Full Version : point and shoot

Does any one have any hands on experience with some good point and shoot cameras? I have been looking for something for my wife and to take to the theme parks when we go, so I don't have to take the heavy dslr (unless we are going specifically to take high quality photos).

I have been looking at either the sony rx100 or the Canon S110, both have great reviews and take really great photos. However I have a hard time throwing down 650+ dollars for the sony when I can get a second dslr for around the same price for a little more.

The Canon is also up there I think around 450. Little better price especially if the quality is there.

Hi Tommy,
I have the Canon A2300 point and shoot. It is 16mp and takes really good photos. I still haven't learned all it can do but I am really pleased with it and it didn't cost an arm and a leg. If I remember right it was a little over $100 through Dell.

I'd recommend anything by Kodak. I accidentally washed one of their cameras and it came out working fine, which was a great relief. I've had a number from them and none have ever really malfunctioned on me. They would be perfect for theme parks too as they're simple to put in your purse or a pocket.

I have a Canon G9 that I like very much. I think the latest Canon G-series camera is pricey, but they are good quality cameras that have a lot of extra features you'd normally find on a DSLR.

I have the Panasonic (Lumix) DMC-FZ28 which I've had for a number of years. Takes great pictures and also can do some of the features of DSLRs. The Nikon Coolpix cameras are also good.

I have a Nikon Coolpix. I paid around $120 for it at Walmart. I am by no means a photographer, but it does capture great images. I mostly use it for quick snapshots of my kids, but it has worked far better than any other one I've owned.
