Yummy411: Tag I'm It-- What camera do I use?


Thanks Lakahna! She tagged me to answer the question: "What type of camera do I use?"

I currently use a Kodak Easy Share c816. My Samsung Digimax that I used prior to BabyYum's bday was my go to cam that I bought when he was born to capture all of the memories (*tear*). It did a great job, but I didn't do a good job at protecting my images in this digital age. Many of BabyYums memories died with my old laptop. *sigh*
When the battery door broke on the Samsung, keeping the batteries insecure, I had to find something. As much as I wanted a Canon PowerShot or something Nikon, (I was supposed to be saving up money to invest in a good quality professional digi cam) I had to get a digital point and shoot at an affordable price. I thought I was digi-cam savvy enough for the higher specs, but what it all came down to was if it point and shot a clear image and if it had macro settings (what cam doesn't?). I also wanted something user friendly and not something that I had to constantly refer to the manual for and adjust settings to get something done. On my Samsung, I only relied on the auto and macro settings, so I figured with higher megapixels, I'd be okay. While this Kodak has more settings and megapixels, I still would prefer my Samsung. The only downfall of my Samsung was that the battery life of the rechargeables was horrible! I can go a week or so now with my batteries in the Kodak before having to recharge them. The downfall of the Kodak? I hate the lag between the pics! You seriously have to wait almost a whole minute or so before you can take the next pic. Wtf?! You'll miss quite a few things during that time! Oh well.. any other reasonable cam you'd recommend? (I still have my 90 day receipt!)

In memory of the Samsung and the hundreds of other photos and video clips lost of infant BabyYum, here are a few that I still have and adore!:
