  • New Camera needed

    Ok, I just killed my old camera, it survived philmont(for those taht know of it , they know taht's a feat) and a crud load of boy scout camping trips
    But after almost of month of non use, I found it behind my computer and it had a dent ont he front of the houseing and the screen was all kablooey

    Now I'm wondering if someone could help me with choosing a camera
    I want something that has a relatively good picture quality, hopefully with AA batteries but if I have to I'll charge batteries for it
    Manual options like focusing, exposure (for night shots that you don't want to use flash aka when I was at philmont with no light pollution ad the stars looked amazing!!!!!), good light and dark shooting white balancing
    The reason for manual options is I'm using the LG Env Touch phone, and it has alot of manual stuff thats allowed me to make really good pictures when I want to, mostly of my dogs
    I dont care about many modes since I usually either do auto or landscape and video
    Relatively centered pedastel mounting point but tahts moot if it can't be done just my preference
    Good zoom, bigish screen so I can see stuff well
    Panorama, shock resistant or proof, and hopefully some sort of waterproofing
    INexpensive relatively since my dad has blamed me for breaking my camera, granted I didn't find it until today after a month and he won't help me get a new camera


    Anyone have any ideas for me to look at?

      Sure I recommend this one...



      I have one and it takes amazing phtotos with all the manual controls you could want.

      B&H Photo is a good place to pick one up:

      Aside from he small matter of price, it was exactly what you were asking for :D.

          I just bought a point and shoot for my wife as she already has a DSLR which is to bulky for day to day.

          The one thing I learned is that there are so many point and shoots out there that it's very difficult to find good reviews to compare. I bought a Panasonic Luminix ZS3 (I think?) It is called something different in the US like a T7 or TS7? It came up a few times in reviews and always as top finisher. However I don't know about some of the manual features your looking for with it.

          Honestly your going to have to google alot to find the right one. It took me much longer then I thought it would due to the sheer volume of cameras out there compared to most electronics I buy. Good luck.
