Happy New Year!

Wishing you a healthy, prosperous, and happy 2010.

I didn't do "year in review" things. (My short synopsis was that my health got better, Obama is president, and I finally got on Facebook -GOOD, but I got laid off and too many people I love died, which bites.) I also was not keen on the idea of "decade in review" because I started off 2000 (after the go-go-go of Y2k prep) basically having a nervous breakdown, although it does lend perspective to my current "meh" state. ("HEY! I'm not being screamed at, at home and at work!")

I need some advice from the camera-savvy on my list! My digicam seems to be dying - it worked fine in June, but when I found it again in the fall, its screen is streaky even after I put the newly charged batteries in. I have some Amazon.com gift cards (which I bought by pouring my change into a Coinstar machine - thank you Margaret for that tip) so I'm thinking it's time to get a new one.

I take "group shots", pix of my cats, landscape shots, and like taking photos of my food, so something with a good short-range capacity would be ideal.

If I can reuse anything from my Canon S410 Powershot, so much the better.

Ideal Price range: under 300 (I had a LOT of change and I've found more!)

Thanks folks.

The Canon line of POwershots is GREAT. Thats what I started shooting with back when I was doing Tableau Vivante. Very versatile and they do all the things you want with good results.

Stick with powershots. They are wonderful, pocket sized, and give you what you need.
