Good afternoon. I'm looking to replace my Samsung point & shoot since the lens keeps getting stuck. I already have a Canon Rebel XS but am looking for point n shoot for ease of travel. I've done some research but I don't see any reviews that are conclusive as to being the one camera to buy. Any insight you could provide would be much appreciated. I'm leaning more towards a weather proof/water proof camera since we tend to spend a lot of time at the pool/beach during the summer. In addition, we're going on a cruise and it would be nice to take underwater shots or at least not have to worry about having the camera at the pool or beach. The camera does not need to have an "immediate share" feature. Just decent pictures. Thank you for your help! Budget * What budget have you allocated for buying this camera? $200 - $300 USD Size * What size camera are you looking for? Or does size not matter at all to you? Compact - can put into coat pocket Features How many megapixels will suffice for you? 10 - 14 * What optical zoom will you need? (None, Standard = 3x-4x, Ultrazoom = 10x-12x) Standard optical zoom * How important is “image quality” to you? (Rate using a scale of 1-10) High - 9.5 Do you care for manual exposure modes (shutter priority, aperture priority, manual)? nice but not necessary - the point of this camera is to not have to think. General Usage * What will you generally use the camera for? travel, on the go, vacation pictures, some landscapes, some monuments, people. I love my DSLR but am not comfortable taking it on vacation - don't want to have to worry about it. Plus it's not really suitable to spending time at the pool or beach. * Will you be making big prints of your photos or not? probably not but the possibility exists. Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos or low light photos? yes for indoor - probably museums Will you be shooting sports and/or action photos? probably not - I have the DSLR for that Miscellaneous Are there particular brands you like or hate? No Are there particular models you already have in mind? Just needs to be compatible with iMac/Apple brand computers. (If applicable) Do you need any of the following special features? (Wide Angle, Image Stabilization, Weatherproof, Hotshoe, Rotating LCD) I'm thinking weatherproof would be nice (our vacation is taking us to a usually rainy location).
