I need a new digital camera. My Sony after two and half years is pretty much done. I cracked the screen over a year ago. I am not sure exactly how or when it happened, but it looks as though it was in my jersey pocket and I leaned up against the nose of my saddle. Oops! For the past month or so, the zoom has stopped working. It takes forever to turn on and sounds like the zoom is adjusting but it doesn't.
So I am looking at purchasing something new. I know I want something compact. My current camera was a gift and it was great, but I think this time I would like something slimmer. I am not sure if I need to pay for something durable. Since I am cheap, I mean frugal, I would prefer not to pay for something shock proof, if it is not needed. Any recommendations? What do you like about yours?
