I went with what I felt was the best quality P&S I could find at that time. I have been thrilled with it ever since! Its the only camera I usually have with me when I travel now. Great Zoom, nice photos, the ability to go manual if I want... all in an itty bitty package!
Don't get me wrong... I wouldn't dream of giving up my DSLR! I need it for portraits and designing, but for day to day photos... and almost all vacation/trips... my little Sony rocks!
"Purse camera" is a good term! That's exactly what I need - something to take to Disneyland and assorted other trips with me. Thanks Paula!
