    I'm looking at cameras. I prefer something lightweight and not bulky. Easy to use and takes good pictures. What are your recommendations? Preferably under $300.

    Thanks!

    I've used a Panasonic Lumix DMCTZ5 for years. It's a fab little camera that's small enough to pop in my pocket, really easy to use and takes great photos. There are several updated models after mine but I assume they're all as good. :)

    I've always been a fan of the Sony Cybershot. It's a great little camera and takes excellent photos.

    I can help but it'll probably just annoy you with all the questions

    Whats most important to you?

    mega tiny?
    or
    larger zoom?

    do you generally like photos with POP or photos that look kinda neutral and normal

    I currently have a Lumix and I do love it.

    Hmmm and here I thought the POP was an editing program Super tiny is not the biggest issue. Just really good pictures

    I use a Lumix now, but I far prefer the software in my old Canon point and shoot - it was really easy to use and I found myself able to do so much more with the 'figuring out how to use it' out of the way.

    I'd recommend a Canon to anyone.

    :D Keith, we have another Canon person.









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
