Quoting LolaMcKitten:" I guess I;m just gonna have to make a list and actually try them out. I haven't bought one in 7 years, so...I don't know what's considered good these days. "
Nikon is typically a good brand, but if I had to pick between nikon and canon for point and shoot cameras.... I'd do Canon. DSLR cameras have perks between the two brands, but I'd choose a nikon with a DSLR but be perfectly fine with a Canon Rebel too.
I really did love my powershot, it took GREAT pics and durable as hell. Im talking like... in my pocket at raves type durable. I think my powershot is more than 3 years old like I said, I think it's actually closer to 5 1/2. That little sucker is as good as day 1 minus 1 dead pixel on it.
But the polaroid that I recently got... it has a TON of features. It's durable and the pics look great. I love it
But Im getting a DSLR, and I will most likely choose a Canon.
