Camera question for the knowledgeable
Camera question for the knowledgeable, or at least, for those who have an opinion....
I need a new camera.
I am not a photographer, but know that I want a smaller size, fast first picture reaction (don't know the right terminology, but, want the camera to take the picture when I push the button, not 2 seconds later when my dogs/grandkids have moved on!)
I want to be able to blow up pictures, (maybe zoom in is a better explanation,) and have good clear shots, like when I take a picture from far away, and zoom in to Tucker who is running like the wind across the field.
I would love to be able to get rid of red eye, but don't know if that is possible with a simpler camera. I don't do well with technology, and want to just mostly be able to point and shoot. A bit of manual focussing option would probably not be bad.
I've researched on line, and just am overloaded with info that I don't know what to do with. Three that I've seen on ConsumerReports are Casio Exilim Card E-S10 for $200. Sony Cyber-shot DSDC-T70 for $230. Kodak EasyShare Z1012 IS for $240.
Any other helpful suggestions that could help me to get good (or at least better) pictures?
Thanks for any help from anyone who can offer guidance, or opinions on how you like your own cameras.
