{Point 'n' Shoot}

I have been searching for a point and shoot for some time now because even though I love my Nikon D200 I find it limiting when I just want to capture the family at the zoo because when you have a baby in your arms and wrangling a bulky camera just to capture a moment can be quite daunting.

Don't get me wrong, if I am looking to do professional pictures for clients, family pictures for my wall or just plain landscape images I am going to reach for my Nikon D200 but for the everyday, random images in my life I want to just reach for a basic point and shoot, no fuss, no muss.

I searched and researched many different kinds and found what I like and don't like and finally settled on a Canon Elph 300 HS powershot. It's fast, has great images in low light, has image stabilization and takes video (in HD even). It's going to take some getting use to but I think it's going to be just what I need and best of all it fits in the pocket of my jeans, diaper bag or shirt pocket and there is no fuss or muss and it won't take up hardly any room.

Below are some quick images taken with it some by me and others by Ruth...just a quick few to share and there is no color editing or sharpening - I only cropped the image to 5x7 with a resolution of 72 for the blog. (excuse the messy house...please)

  1. I have a fuji finepix that I've had for about 5 years now I think. What a sturdy little thing and I think it takes great photos. Even has a macro setting for close ups of small stuff. I'm no photographer, that's for sure, but I think having a camera you can keep in your pocket is a must! Does yours have a rechargeable battery? Mine does, but my daughter's didn't and it ate AA's like I eat chocolate!
