Hello! I have a Canon T4i, but am looking now for a point and shoot câmera, since I am traveling to Disney with my children and wanted a smaller camera. I just took a Photo course, so I've learned a little on how to take pics using manual. I researched a lot, but didn't come to a conclusion, so I decided to write to hear from you... Since I am using Canon, I think I should opt for a Canon as well, but if you say it does't mind, I could have another brand without problem... Thank you very much for your help! Luciana Budget - I would go up to 750.. Size - compact and lighter as possible Features - Since I undertook a photo class, want to take pics with good quality, but nothing specific. How many megapixels will suffice for you? - same as prior question What optical zoom will you need? think standard would be fine How important is “image quality” to you? 8 Do you care for manual exposure modes (shutter priority, aperture priority, manual)? Yes General Usage - I want to take it where I think my DSLR is big to go with. Traveling or going out with children, for eg. What will you generally use the camera for? Taking my family's picture Will you be making big prints of your photos or not? Not very big. Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos or low light photos? Not very much. Will you be shooting sports and/or action photos? Movement yes, but not Sporting. Miscellaneous Are there particular brands you like or hate? Like canon very much, but like others as Nikon or sony as well Are there particular models you already have in mind? Canon G12 and G1 X. I don't want the G15 one, since it does not have a flexible LCD. Do you need any of the following special features? (Wide Angle, Image Stabilization, Weatherproof, Hotshoe, Rotating LCD). Rotating LCD yes.
