Hi friends, my Powershot just broke today and I died a little inside. I'm looking for a good quality compact that can take as good of macros as a Canon Powershot, but is not a Canon Powershot (because the last two Powershots I've had had mechanical problems). Thank you! Cassi Budget < $300 Size Compact. Features > 8 MP Standard zoom Image quality importance: 10/10 Do you care for manual exposure modes (shutter priority, aperture priority, manual)? Would be a huge plus. General Usage What will you generally use the camera for? MACRO, snapshots, photography uploaded to the Internet, but decent quality moderately sized prints would be nice. Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos or low light photos? Yes. Will you be shooting sports and/or action photos? Yes. Miscellaneous Are there particular brands you like or hate? Canon Powershot--the last two Powershots I had, the shutter apparatus has fallen apart and the entire front of the camera falls off. Are there particular models you already have in mind? No. (If applicable) Do you need any of the following special features? (Wide Angle, Image Stabilization, Weatherproof, Hotshoe, Rotating LCD) IS, Rotating screen, weatherproof, would be nice.
