Here's my situation: I've never purchased anything other than a point and shoot, but my husband and I are adopting two kids from Ethiopia within the next few months. When we travel to their homeland, I want to be able to really capture memories for their lifebooks. The pictures will be the most important links they have to their past so I need a good camera, reasonably priced. I want it to capture both still photos and video, and it can't be too fussy. I'd love to hear from busy people who enjoy using their cameras to capture their kids.
Cameras that make great holiday gifts
Let them start the new year with a step up in photo and video quality from a phone.
