I love being asked about digital cameras. Not only are there so many options out there in terms of size, color, and features, but I am always on the look out for the next hot camera to drool over! So when I saw cwjam88's question about which new digital camera she should spring for, I jumped at the chance to give my two cents. Cwjam88 writes:
What is a good point and shoot camera? The one that I have says it has "image stability" but it really doesn't, unless it's used in really high-lit places, the images look noisy. Plus is there a long wait after taking a picture to be able to take another one? Which point and shoot takes images quickly, turns on quickly, and doesn't have noisy images?
To hear my take,
I can tell you from experience that the Sony T100 is a great point and shoot, and one of my favorite cameras I've ever owned. I carry this baby around at all times just in case I find a news-worthy shot, and need to capture it quickly. It's face detection and antiblur solution makes shooting in low light, bright light, and everywhere in between easy and also reduces picture noise that can come with low-light situations. The other thing I dig about the T100 is you can edit pics right in the camera which, lets be honest, isn't really that useful if you know your way around Photoshop or iPhoto. . . but it's really fun to play with anyway. Plus, it's really fast in between shots, so you can capture every moment. The price is a little high at $350, but you can find great certified refurbished models for $279, which is a great deal!
Now that I've told you about my fave camera, there's plenty of other options out there that are fast, easy to use, and quite stylish to fit your taste.
