This could well be a good topic for this place...
Help me pick out a camera.
Here's what I'm looking to replace - Nikon Coolpix S4300 - a 16MP point-and-shoot compact camera that actually had a respectable rating back in the day. In fact, I got lucky when I bought it - it came in a two-pack from Costco. My elderly dad was looking for a dead-simple digital camera. Having two of them meant I could walk him thru the steps with mine in the event he had issues.
What I want it to do:
I've used this camera, along with a predecessor on a laynard around my neck for those 'gotta get it!' photos that happen while riding a motorcycle. At times, the motorcycle may be moving, so it should be fairly easy to turn on and hit the shutter button with a gloved hand.
Price range? I dunno...$600?
As I was writing this, I just learned about the term 'bridge camera'. I just don't know if something like this might also work as replacement in the use case mentioned above.
