    Default Point & Shoot Cameras

    Well, my poor little point & shoot's LCD has a crack in it... again I have had to replace so many of them because of the LCD cracking. I'm not even sure how it happened this time.
    Anyway, I'm not at the point where I want to lug around a DSLR, so I'm back in the market for another point & shoot. I like small cameras because I'm a bit clumsy ( maybe that's why so many of my cameras have broken?)
    Do you have a point & shoot you would recommend? Or are you like most people & just use your smart phone now? PS...I don't have a smart phone (see "clumsy" reference above).

    I have the Nikon CoolPix AW 100. It takes amazing photos and it waterproof (we used it on vacation for pictures of swimming with the sea turtles). This link is for the AW110 - they are the same, I think the 110 has a blue tooth option and maybe a bit more resolution. My mom has a smaller CoolPix and she likes how easy it is to use.

    I have a point and shoot, and love it! I got it last Christmas, but I get the same kind everytime. I LOVE Sony CyberShot. It's the DSC-HX9V. Has 16x zoom and a nice big 3' LCD. It can handle a bunch! I'm *clumsy*, too! I even dropped my "baby" from a Stagecoach...LOL! It has a crack on the side, but still works! It's sorta okay in the dark, but I have to edit it a bunch. I've had Sony's for the past 3 cameras. The biggest downfall is the battery. It only uses Sony! And it's not cheap! LOL!

    I bought a nice Canon PowerShot D20 (underwater camera) before we went to Hawaii. It's a great camera ...but I always have my iPhone on me and it takes terrific pictures so having my PnS and my phone is one item too many. And as for clumsy, I've dropped my phone soooo many times but it's in an OtterBox case and it takes the abuse not my phone.

    I will add that the CoolPix AW100 (and 110) are shockproof for dropping too.

    I want an ELPH by Canon. I had an A3400 but it fell in the washer (it works EVERYWHERE but the lens).
    I've had NO issues with my Canons, but my Sonys and Nikons got slower and slower the longer I had them.

    I have a fuji that's waterproof... I really want to update it to the nikon one. I have a dslr but it really isn't ideal for the beach and stuff for me. How does it do with indoor pics? The fuji really bites the dust inside

    I think it takes great indoor pictures. As with any P&S, if the lighting is real low, you have to mess with the settings some...but I've taken a picture of my puppy in almost complete darkness (using the night setting) and it turned out decent.

    I've always had Canons, I don't consider myself brand-loyal, but I guess I tend to gravitate towards the familiar. I've read that point & shoot cameras are going the way of the dinosaurs because smart phone cameras are getting so much better. Hmmm... looks like I need to do a lot more research!
