I ordered a new camera off Amazon.....
After reading some recommendations and doing some searching I decided to get the following camera: Canon PowerShot SX130IS 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 12x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom with 3.0-Inch LCD
I watched a video about it and that was extremely helpful. I should get it on Wednesday and will have time to mess with it before the Osmonds' show on April 30th.
I'm so looking forward to getting it. I really wanted an SLR but after searching, it was a little more than I wanted to spend and accessories were too much. This camera was recommended if you're ready to move past the "point and shoot" type camera. I'm ready for that. The video was helpful! For less than $300, I'm getting the camera, 3 memory cards, a charger with batteries, 4 screen protectors and a camera case. It all sounds good to me.
A Beary Merry Christmas to all!
