My work in progress is developing a database of all plants in my yard, including a photo of each. I've gone through several point-n-shoot digi cams (I tend to drop or lose them on a more frequent than I would like basis) throughout this years-long project and don't find a big difference between any of them for flower pics. As long as they have a macro setting, I'm good to go.
My cell phone is largely unused and I rarely think of using it as a camera.
Would buy another Canon Powershot in a heart beat - it took THE best pics. I 'upgraded' though...alternate between my iphone and my Canon Rebel T3i DSLR. The first taken with my powershot back in 07' - the second and third with my iphone and the last with my DSLR
I bought a really reasonable Nikon Coolpix L22 on closeout sale from Walmart for about $85. It's a very simple camera and easy to carry, about the size of a cigarette pack. It does NOT recharge, but uses regular alkaline AA batteries found almost everywhere. Has many different modes including "flower" close-ups and "easy-auto" which I tend to use most. I've taken some superior pictures with this cheap little camera
I started out with just a phone/camera and have been VERY happy with it. Pix 1, close ups are great and actually take the pix how I want it...
Got a new phone/camera for my birthday this spring and I like it but need to get used to it, focusing is a bit different tho and coloring also. Pix 2, here's a great one, and another not so much, lol. Pix 3, not so great, overexposed and a bit out of focus. As always...the camera is used more than the phone, lol...
Camera I got for Mother's day is a Fuji 14 megapixal, gosh I'm still leaning about this one. Some out of focus, whites a bit washed out also. I hate that I couldn't get a digital camera that could use my lenses from a reg. 35mm.
I have a little Singapore import key chain("one of those" five dollar "ad things") digital I use most of the time, that is the way I voted.The cheat is every so often my laptop webcam is what I am using.And the later,is a fifteen year old dell from the bin,didn't I just read something about time to upgrade? SIGH(OH WELL).
Nikon Coolpix 4800...have had it since 2005. Can be temperamental on close ups sometimes, but sometimes it truly amazes me with the photos it produces.
Even if I ever get my dream camera, I'd still keep this one since it is so easy to carry around, put in my backpack, beach bag, bike bag, or just around my neck while enjoying the outdoors.
Nikon Coolpix L120, 14.1 MP, 21x optical zoom. It's actually higher res than my hubby's Canon but no interchangeable lenses, of course. I bought it because I wanted something small enough to fit in my purse. We went to Mexico last January and I took over 1000 pics. I too am trying to document my garden and have taken at least a couple hundred pics this spring and summer. After I take the pics I transfer them to my tablet (Asus Transformer- not great as a camera) and use a great app I found called Photo Enhance Pro to crop and adjust color/contrast/brightness. It doesn't reduce the resolution of the pics like most apps do.
