I am pre-shopping for a camera and would like any recomendations…my requirements:

  • point and shoot option so anyone in the house can use it
  • common battery size/ long life
  • I like a lot of zoom for catching kids when they don’t know I am there.
  • I am going to say less than $150–thinking I can probably find one in that range for about $80 after Christmas.

I want sturdy, and long-lasting and if you can tell me what to look at I can earmark the one/s I want to snag in January.


What do you use?
