  • I had a coolpix and it took blurry pictures. My MIL has the same problem with hers but I know other people love them and rave reviews online.

    I didn't understand that one

  • I loved having a coolpix (Nikon.) We are pretty rough on cameras and are just using our iPhones for now. I would get another coolpix if we were in the market for another camera.

    DS1 has his own Nikon (some really nice version of the coolpix) and it's wonderful.

    I would stay away from Fuji. We had one, it broke within a week of getting it. The store exchanged it and the replacement broke in the exact same way a year later (just enough time for the warranty to be done.)

  • The thing about a DSLR is that you don't *have* to change the lens. We have had our DSLR for over a year now and never bought another lens for it. We would like to but... but it is not in the cards right now. Point and shoots were way too slow for us and I always ended up with great pictures for the first few months then they began to deteriorate. A point and shoot only has about a 2-3 year life span in general though the quality can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Plus they are very slow- you miss a lot. I recommend ( if money is no object) that you at least mess around with some DSLR's and get a feel for the speed and quality.

  • DSLR's also have a limited life span. They have a shutter-click count. I had a Canon Rebel before. It's to big and bulky.
