Hey dudes and dudettes! I have a question to pose to the internet! Everytime I do this, the internet always comes to my aid, so here goes.
My dear old point and shoot Canon Powershot A700 from a million years ago that I remember paying an exorbitant sum for, is hiccuping. Bad. It seems to think all the batteries I give it are dead (though they are fresh as daisies) and loves to just turn itself off after one or two shots. I think it is time to finally lay my baby to rest, and so I ask this: People of the internet, what is a good point and shoot camera that won't break my bank, but that also gives me a few manual functions? What is your favourite? I have no interest in something complicated, been there, done that, I want to record my life in a simple way. If I ever need fancy photos, I have an entire family of photographers to fall back on.
I can and have done some research myself, but reviews on websites are only so good, and star ratings are often misleading. I used to work in a camera store, but it's been a long time, and I no longer have my thumb on the pulse of the industry.
Also, I would like it to be red. That is all.
