My wife and I are looking to buy a new digital camera soon. I've been surfing epinions a bit to try and weed out the good from the bad, but honestly there are so many different cameras out there that I'm starting to feel a bit overwhelmed. If the reviews are to be believed, basically every camera has an issue: one might chew through batteries like no tomorrow, another might take pictures with a slight blue tint to them, while another might not take SD Cards.
Surely, some of my fellow forum goers might have some good and bad experiences with different types of cameras. What type of digital camera would you recommend?
Here are a few things I'm looking for:
- Roughly $200-$350 Canadian
- SD Card compatible
- Easy to use software
- Optical Zoom
Of course, picture quality has to be good. Any suggestions?
