I’m looking for a point and shoot. Nothing bulky – ideally, something I could throw in a purse and not worry about… unless, of course, there is a camera I MUST have! 😉
I currently use my iPhone for my photo needs, but it’s not cutting it. I want something that can take sequential shots (not sure if that’s the right term) – but lots of photos per second. I’m not sure any point and shoots have that feature – so many I’m living in a land of delusion.
Any an all recs are appreciated!

This happen to catch my eye this week: http://www.amazon.com/Olympus-Digital-Camera-3-Inch-Monitor/dp/B004HO59LK/ref=cm_cmu_pg__header
It doesnt have much zoom, but it look like it takes amazing pictures for a point and shoot, and has an unheard f/1.8 for a point and shoot at this price.

I just got the Nikon D5100 – LOVE it!! Absolutely love it!! It’s a big camera though.

As an art major, I used to be really into canon’s, but when I got my own point and shoot a few years ago, the color was never right and it started malfunctioning on me and I had barely used it! It also cost more to “fix” than buying another one! My friend had one exactly like it but a model older which worked awesome. Somehow I got a bad egg.
Now I have a Sony cyber shot and I really like it! Simple to use, the picture is clear and the color is great! Plus, they aren’t as expensive as some other brands…and you can get a great deal on them at Target!
Also know, don’t get caught up in the megapixle mind game. Just because one has 15 and the other has 12 doesn’t mean all that much! Anything over 10 is going to be a great shot no matter what. And you know what…sometimes higher MPs makes a worse picture!

I am not a professional or anything but we got on a LOT of adventures and our cameras really take a beating. I got my first sony cyber shot from my father while i was in college, i liked it then, back when 3mp was as high as they came) it was simple and indestrictable. I have had a total of 4 sony cyber shots in a variety of models and upgrades. One of them lived through the dryer even! (don’t ask) After a dog we were sitting ate the most recent cyber shot we purchased what was supposidly a top of the line point and shoot through cannon. ugh. it was flimsy, the MP is higher but the pictures are not as clear, its not as user friendly at all. I will be purchasing my self a new cyber shot after christmas this year.
A short list of things my prior sony cyber shots lived through: 2 car crashes, being in the dryer, being dropped in a lake, frozen after left in our car in february, many sand storms in africa. a few falls off rock walls, and the onlything it didn’t live through was a dog chewing the lens off. If you need a user friendly good quality indestructable camera, I reccomend them highly. The only reason I ever got rid of them was to upgrade to a newer one.

After using a DSLR I don’t think I can ever use a point and shoot again…. which is annoying since they fit so easily in my small purse. I looked at the one PinkShoes recommends on Amazon and realized my friend has the exact same one and she loves it. So, 2 votes for that.
