Sony Cybershot camera that has been really great. It brought me into the lovely digital photography world and has taken millions of fantastic pictures.
Lately, however, I've been having some trouble with it -- the on off sliding switch sticks and sometimes when I snap a picture, nothing happens. That's okay when you're taking a still shot of fruit or something, but when you miss a cute moment with the granddaughter or the dogs ... well, that's just unacceptable! Plus, it's on the heavy side. When I toss it in my purse to take it out for a spin, the purse drops about 2 feet. I might be exaggerating a little, but it really seems heavy. And when I see all of these tiny little slim credit card sized cameras being advertised, mine looks really big. Plus getting the little door open to remove the memory card for printing is a royal pain in the butt. I have broken more fingernails trying to pry that thing open and have recently resorted to using a butter knife.
Hubby got me a Sprint Moment phone for Christmas last year which has a camera and takes pretty good pictures on the fly. However, it does not zoom, which I use a lot so that is not the solution.
So I am asking of all of you bloggers who take wonderful pictures and have strong opinions ... what camera would you recommend? I am looking for the following features:
Small and lightweight (maybe fit in my jeans pocket)
Ability to take macro photos
A Size 2 lens for when I am actually in the picture (not sure if this has been invented yet)
Good for action shots (my Sony has a delay so I often miss a picture by a second or two)
Takes great pictures
I'll leave you with a photo taken with my Sony that I just love ...
