FI and I are looking for a camera to put on our registry and we really don’t know which one to get. We (read: FI has) have a really nice Nikon Dsomething camera that I refuse to use (mainly because I broke it the first time I touched it). So I need a simple point and shoot camera that can still take some nice pictures. I don’t want to put a really expensive one on as I tend to break/loose them, so I’m thinking $150 or less. Any suggestions?

I had a Canon Power Shot camera before I got my fancier camera and I loved it. Easy to use, fits in your purse, takes nice photos.

I second the Powershot. I love mine… it take MUCH better pictures than other cameras I have had! My husband has the Kodak Easyshare and it is truly terrible! The difference in picture quality between that and the Powershot is really astounding. Here is my camera http://www.amazon.com/Canon-PowerShot-SD780IS-Stabilized-Black/dp/B001SER47Y/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1300910272&sr=8-12

Thanks. I’ve heard good things about the Powershot, but wasn’t sure if it was all hype or not.
@Miss Sayrah: My first “real” camera was an Easyshare, and it was horrible. I’ll never own Kodak again after that. Of course, I was like 10 (so we’re talking 10-ish years ago, but still) and I’m a pretty tech-savvy person, but it just wasn’t good at all.

My SO has an Olympus. It’s water-proof, shock proof (read: drop-proof) and takes pretty good pictures. I use my Nikon Dsomething (lol, mines D3000) when we are “safe” but his camera goes to the beach, pool, on the boat, etc. 🙂

@Paper Rose: haha “drop-proof” you’re talking my language now. Thanks for the other selection. I’m just picking a couple that I like (because a requirement is that it fits in my pocket) and then FI does the research and tells me which one is actually the best one for the money. I’ll look at some Olympus ones too 🙂 He’s got a really nice camera, I just stay away from it because I’m pretty sure if I look at it wrong it breaks. lol
