I'm somewhat of a noob to digital photography/cameras. I've been looking to spend between 250-400 dollars (max) on a digital point and shoot camera. It's overwhelming, there are so many choices. I've checked out dp and steve's reviews dozens of times, but have trouble narrowing down the field. I'm going to hawaii for a month this summer and want to invest in a nice camera. I'm going to be carrying it with me everywhere, and these are some features I've been looking for: Decent size, not too big.. Needs to fit in my pocket easily and comfortably Takes crisp, detailed clean pics.. Minimum purple fringing/noise Decent night shots Quick powerup time (I know im gonna be pulling my camera out of my pocket for opportunistic shots often) Decent video mode. Something that preferably records as long as free memory is available Durable. Like I said, I'm going to be all over the island with this camera, outdoors and whatnot. Decent selection of scene modes.. It's gonna be bright as hell some days, gloomy others.. Gonna be taking lots of beach/outdoor shots. Taking most of these features in, I think the canon SD300 suits my needs the best, but I'm really not too sure. If any of you out there can hook me up with some input, I'd really appreciate it.
