I think I'm one step up from your 3 year old's camera, Daffy!!!
I have a Kodak point and shoot that's been at the bottom of a pond
It's an "ok" camera, except that all my pics are so full of noise and blurry if you get too close! I WANT to be using the Canon PowerShot A630, but that's a dream that's very far away!!
I don't have the patience for an SLR camera. I like to take pictures far too much to be fiddling with settings. I have GREAT respect for those that CAN use them and use them well!!
Wanna come take pics of my girls, Daffy??
