I think I just need to write this all out in order to get a better sense of what camera I should purchase for my new pocket camera. With any luck I can get Carmi Levy from written inc to weigh in on this, as I do respect his photographic skill and knowledge of gadgets. :)
As previously noted, I'm in the market for a new compact digital camera. I want something that literally will fit in any pocket, so that pretty much eliminates cameras with aperture/shutter control (bummer) and leaves me with some pretty slick looking point and shoots (hooray!). I always have my 20 oz. film SLR's for the more creative photography anyway.
So, I spent last night watching reviews and reading digital camera forums and have whittled it down to the following selections....
The last camera I had was the predecessor to the above camera. I liked it well enough.... It was nice and slim to fit in a front pant pocket and the user interface was very intuitive. One definite advantage of going with this camera would be that it would be comfortable in my hand right out of the box.
2. Sony DSC-WX150
This camera is essentially Sony's answer to the first camera on my list. It's a higher picture quality Megapixel-wise, however in my opinion the Sony Lens G isn't as good as the the Leica Panasonic boasts. It would have been nice if this camera had a Carl Zeiss lens like some of Sony's other models.
3. Canon ELPH 110 HS
I used to carry a camera like it was a part of me. An extra eye and brain to record images on... quite seriously. I would like that again, and having the right camera will make that very easy to do.
So, what camera do you shoot with or what was your favorite camera to shoot with?
