Looking for a Good Small Camera?

On my tours as a guide I find that there are many seniors with heavy Nikons, Canons, Olympus and Sonys hung around their necks with a lens that is at least four inches long.  I find from my own recent experience in London and Rome that the pocket size cameras serve just as well. They have a removable disk that I am able to insert into my HP Photosmart C4580 and load on to my iMac with ease.  I send these photos on to my family via an attachment and can easily share my travels with them.

Seniors, Budget Travel says…

Budget Travel has stacked up a year’s worth of innovations, upgrades, and flashy new features to find the best point-and-shoots under $500.  Four of the best travel cameras on the market today include those that have a mega-zoom in a mini size. Look at a Canon PowerShot ILPH 510 HS.  Then try the Sony Cyber-shot TX55 with simultaneous video and stills.  The Fujifilm FinePix features a camera that is part compass and part guidebook.  The last one is a Nikon CoolPix that has slide shows on the go.  I love the fact that on my FujiPix Z I can shoot movies as well as still pics.  My newer Nikon Coolpix LII also shoots video and has features that I rarely use.  Both have the ability to hold tons of photos. The Fuji is rechargeable and the Nikon takes 2-AA batteries.

It is so handy to be able to pull out a camera that fits into your pocket, weighs very little and shoots flashes and movies both with little expertise needed.

These cameras run between $350 and $450.  You can look up each camera by going to:,, and Have fun shooting those unforgettable scenes, Seniors.  jeb
