Discussion: Doubts on quality possibilities

Friday, January 11th, 2008

Hello to all! I’ve had a canon power shot… it broke… but was handy to travel with…Have a Sony DSC F505V… useless in the sun (only lcd screen), and too big to carry anywhere that’s not a SPECIFIC outing to take pictures… on a cloudy day or indoors! and have just acquired an Olympus Stylus 820…. am excited about LEARNING.

Photography has always been my postponed hobby… but now I’m reading your comments in the forum, and I see that most cameras are NOT “point and shoot”…


Have I made a mistake in buying such a camera, even though it seems to have good “qualifications”?Are any of your beautiful pictures taken with a “point and shoot”? I’m sure it’s just me having to learn about lighting, etc…
