maker. If it didn't come with your operating system it's a free
download form microsoft.

Okay, advice request. Over the last few months three cameras have
departed from me. One was a small point and shoot--it simply
disappeared, coulda been stolen or lost, I just dunno. The other two
were identical FujiFilm Finepix cameras, not full DSLR but fairly
sophisticated, both maybe five years old. Each suffered a weird
breakdown--on the first, the settings started to switch spontaneously
and on the second, the zoom control stuck in operation when I tried to
use it. No local repair person and I didn't feel like paying to ship
either one out to the Big City for expensive action. But now I have no
digital camera except my wife's basic, pocket-size point and shoot.
Adequate, but not enough. (And, of course, the camera on my cell
phone, but that's for emergency only--a camera is a camera and a phone
is a phone, folks.)

So: advice requested. I've been looking for something to replace the
DSLRs. I don't want to go big, professional, and expensive; I don't
want another pocket-sized point and shoot; I want something half-way
beteen, similar to the FujiFilm cameras. They both had 14 megapixels,
3.0 high res LCD, viewfinder as well as screen, 24 or 28x zoom, smile
detection, movie capability, image stabilization, and a few other
cunning features.

I've visited several camera suppliers and been shown a good selection
of hardware that might be satisfactory. Some folks (including my
brother, a pro) talked about mirrorless DSLR, and that looks like fun,
but the price has been wildly variable, and I'm not an advanced enough
cameraman to really want to take that step yet. After all I'm just an
amateur who shoots mostly family, friends and scenery.

The price range I've been quoted most often is $CDN500-600. I wasn't
expecting that much, but I guess I could handle it.

Anyone got any suggestions for a camera that sounds like it might be
what I'm looking for?

'Course, I could go back to buying film and loading up the old Pentax
Spotmatic . . . or even further to my late mother's Kodak Brownie that
she bought back in the 1940s . . .

I used a sony cybershot on my africa trip - 50X optical zoom, all the
dslr controls and functions, but lighter in weight and no lenses to
carry around. Under 400 used.

Leo looks like he just finished a person.


Good shots, Frank.  Everything looks great.

Thanks. Leo's not a problem unless you let a body part break the
outline of the truck. Then he notices.
