Which camera should I buy? I am going to the mountains for the holidays. I need a new camera, the one I have is a Kodak and is not very quick. We do a lot of sports and outdoor activities so I was told Cannon is a good camera to buy I am just unsure of which one. I was thinking the Powershot SX230 HS.....I'm unsure though. * What budget have you allocated for buying this camera? $150-$300 * What size camera are you looking for? Or does size not matter at all to you? SOMETHING THAT IS NOT TOO BIG How many megapixels will suffice for you? I WAS THINKING SOMETHING LIKE 10+ * What optical zoom will you need? (None, Standard = 3x-4x, Ultrazoom = 10x-12x) A STANDARD ZOOM OR ULTRAZOOM WILL BE OK * How important is “image quality” to you? (Rate using a scale of 1-10) 10 Do you care for manual exposure modes (shutter priority, aperture priority, manual)? YES I DO, SHUTTER SPEED IS A PRIORITY * What will you generally use the camera for? OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES, SPORTS, PORTRAITS * Will you be making big prints of your photos or not? I MORE THAN LIKELY WILL NOT BE MAKING BIG PRINTS Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos or low light photos? YES, INDOOR AND LOW LIGHT Will you be shooting sports and/or action photos? YES, BOTH SPORTS AND ACTION PHOTOS Are there particular brands you like or hate? I LIKE CANNONS AND NIKONS Are there particular models you already have in mind? THE CANNON POWERSHOT SX230 HS....? (If applicable) Do you need any of the following special features? (Wide Angle, Image Stabilization, Weatherproof, Hotshoe, Rotating LCD) IMAGE STABILIZATION THANKS FOR YOU HELP!!!
