There are many good cameras available.
Stay away from the "no-name" brands.
Look for cameras from Canon, Casio, Fujifilm, Kodak, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony.
They all come with a one year warranty from the camera maker.
For a small pocket camera take a look at a Canon SD1200 or SD1300.
See if that is the type of camera you are looking for.
I would like to find a reasonably priced digital camera that's light weight or compact,is user friendly with great results. I just don't want one that can't be repaired and is basically just an expensive disposable camera,and how can you tell the difference. I'm definetly amateur and not familiar with abbreviations etc.
Thanks in advance for any help.
