A few more travel pics. The boat was our view from a "quaint" private campground in Nova Scotia a few years ago. Mt Rundle was not from a camping trip (too far away and wrong season for us).

I like your photo of the morning coffee brewing Guy. It's one of those detail shots that has a lot of meaning, and really tells the story.

Thanks Brian. Gotta have my morning espresso. Easy to make and fortunately my wife prefers it too.

Wow Brian. I went through your portfolios and blogs. I'd love to say my favourite photo was........, but there are just too many fabulous ones to choose from. Keep up the good work and continue posting pics.

Thumbs up

Okay, I am duly intimidated and very impressed by the great photos everyone is posting. I remind myself my little point and shoots do produce vividly colored pictures that make nice cards people actually buy (though I give more away!)

Brian M., and Brian V., and Roger H..........You all made recommendations to me about cameras, knowing my attachment to my Zeiss Lens on my funky little Sony. Even my better made Cannon does not take as good of pictures. I'm really ready to get something that will take better shots in more situations (the Sony is best at close-ups), but I am 'lazy' and do not want to learn a lot of tech stuff - I can never retain what the manuals say. It's the art of composing & shooting, being able to shoot nature quickly when an opportunity arises, and sharing photos in various ways that I enjoy about photography. Not equipment gismos!

I'm overwhelmed looking at the possibilities and the info rarely gives 'ease of use' info. So what is the most affordable (for the unemployed), with a good quality lens (for the picky), and easy to learn (for the lazy - or maybe dumb), light weight camera - or am I asking too much of one camera?

I realize I will get more than one answer here........

Penney

How muc money are you will to spend?
How much time are you willing to put into learning?
Please note that the learning is important. If you cannot hold a camra still or know how to fram or set it, your pictures will lack in quality. A lot of good books on this with different approaces, The main thing is practice, practice and practice every part.

Under $400 is good, I will check it out, thanks Patrick.

I understand a lot about photography, (holding camera still, use tripod sometimes, framing, light, lighting, etc.) and I practice ALL the time - never without a camera in my pocket. I'm going to take a photo & writing workshop this summer to improve two areas of my life and would like to go with a better camera.

What do I want it to do? I think I said - take quick shots without a lot of settings. I like the automatic settings of my small Sony and Cannon, but neither are good for landscapes, mostly good for close-ups.

I guess I'm looking for a camera that has automatic options and easy to understand manual settings - perhaps that is two different cameras. I liked my Olympus 35 mm and guess I am still looking for the right digital match for me.

Hi Penney,

There are plenty of good cameras out there that will do what you want, in your price range. The Canon G10 is no longer made, it's now a Canon G11. It's a very good camera for about $450.

The Panasonic Lumix is also a good camera with a Leica lens. It's priced under $400.

May I also suggest visiting a local store like Glazer's in Seattle. There you can ask questions from knowledgeable people and actually hold the cameras in your hands.

Whatever you decide, I wish you continued success in your photography adventures!

The 35 mm cameras weight is about 4 pounds and the refurbished can be found for under $ 400 kit. I used the Nikon D-40 for about 15000 pics. Adaroma.com has refurbished of all makes. Try to get one with enough features to keep you busy.
