My camera is broken.  Saturday night it decided to have a major stroke and then on Sunday it died completely.  I have so many photos I want to share!  Boo at the Zoo, the awesome exploding album that Mel taught me how to make on Saturday night via webcam, the felt boards that I’m making for my friends’ kids this Christmas, not to mention the countless other random things I have photographed.  Crap!

I have this camera in blue (well, it’s almost that camera…  mine is 2-years-old).  My father-in-law also had a similar one.  His died the same way on their 3-week road trip around the U.S.  The camera shut itself off and the lens remained out.  I tried charging the battery on Saturday night when this first happened.  When I put the battery back in on Sunday morning the camera worked fine for a little while.  Then, poof!  It died again.  It hasn’t come back to life.  The lens is still out.  I’m so annoyed.

I need a new camera.  I hate camera shopping.  What’s a good point and shoot?  I’m over Sony I think.

    I’m a big fan of the one I got for Christmas last year. It’s a Canon digital elph. I think it’s a SD850, but can’t remember for sure. I haven’t seen it in stores for a few months, but my cousin just bought a 750 and it’s very similar. It also looks like it’s about the size of your old one so it’s super easy to carry around in your purse. It has a bunch of cool settings you can play with and takes excellent pictures cuz of the Canon lens. So there’s my two cents. Can’t wait to see what you actually choose.

    I have a Canon SD550 and I love it. It has optical and digital zoom, macro, continuous shooting, and lots of other easy to use features.

    Did you decide??

    My camera is a canon too. A PowerShot G3. I don’t do anything fancy with it. Just point and shoot.

    Can’t wait to see the exploding album!! 🙂
