Looking for Camera Advice
I am looking into buying a camera. The one I had - well, I still have it but I can't use it because I lost the SD card... Anyway, long story.
First... I can safely afford around $200-$300. I know, most really nice cameras cost well over $1000 and that is just for the body... I can spend more if needed, but that is where I am headed right now. Is that too cheap for anything?
Second... I have neck problems and I can't carry a heavy camera around for any length of time. That rules out some that I think I would really like.... but realistically, I have to take that into account.
Third... Because of the neck/weight problem, I would like for it to fit into a large pocket. But is doesn't have to be the size of a credit card...
I do want a digital, zoom, 3 plus mega pixel, uses a card that I can upload onto a computer. It doesn't need a video or sound as far as I think I need...What about special battery types? Are they a pain?
I can use my i-phone camera, but... I want a camera of my own.
I saw one at a garage sale (Olympus Optical 8x Ultra Zoom), but then they decided they didn't want to sell it!
Anyway, give me some ideas if you can.
Thanks, have a great day.
