|My point-n-hope camera may have given up the ghost on Easter. It was an inexpensive red Canon that took passable photos. So, I may be in the market for a new one. I have thus far avoided a cell phone, but may cave on that just to have one device serving dual purpose. And it seems that phones have fairly decent cameras these days. As a person uninterested in the phone aspect, any suggestions of a good cell camera?
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

|There are still plenty of point-and-shoot cameras available if you don't want to go down the smartphone path. You'll pick up a decent one for far less than a smartphone with an equivalent camera.
Currently it's the big brand names that make good smartphones with cameras (Google, Apple, Samsung, Nokia, etc.)

|IMO, there is no smartphone that has a good a camera as a P&S camera. And they cost way more. Just decide what you need - camera or phone. Gene|

|I'm sure there are lots of good comparable point and shoot cameras, but I like the Panasonic Lumix series, also.|

|I've bought 2 of these, and highly recommend them.
12 mpx is plenty, but especially like the articulated back that allows me to
get images that would be very difficult without it.
This one is used, "good" condition......for $134 may still have a lot of good use left in it. ;)
