I like the form factor of my Nikon Coolpix SQ, but its sluggish
response time and the graphical “noise” it adds to images is beginning
to drive me bonkers. Since I have an upcoming wedding and plan to take
lots of photos of what’s supposed to be a major day in my life, I’m
giving some serious thought to purchasing a new camera and giving my
old one to my sister so she can always shoot pictures of the kids.
I’m still looking for a compact 3-or-more megapixel
mostly-point-and-shoot camera in the CDN$300 – $500 range that also shoots
movies with sound. It would be nice if the camera had a decent reaction
time. I might be willing to overlook a little compactness if it takes
standard AA batteries (I’d use rechargables, but it’s nice to be able
to buy fresh ones from the corner store in a pinch. I’d also like it if
it can shoot movies with sound.
I’ll be cruising a number of digital photography review sites as well as the Henry’s catalogue
to see what’s out there. If you have any suggestions that you’d like to
share with me and the rest of the web, please let me know in the
