My longtime companion camera died today. I have had this camera for 12 years now (it was my highschool graduation gift) and it has been all over the world with me. I am leaving for Vegas and DL in 2 weeks and so I need to get a new camera pronto.
I am finally going to go digital! But I need some advice on what to look for.
Any particular brand to pick? Or avoid? I can afford to spend in the $250-300 range. And it has to be relatively idiot proof as I will (of course) be a newbie.
The sales guy at Best Buy was pushing the Nikkon Coolpix. Are there any features I should look for?
