..."Point and shoot" Cameras... This is more of an opinion-thread. I am currently really into photography. Over the recent years, I have researched, taught myself, and experimented with a lot of photography software. One of my favorites was Adobe Lightroom. I was borrowing a Nikon D70 for some photographs to play with and got some nice ones post-processed in Adobe Lightroom during the free trial. I then started looking into purchasing my own digital camera. I was first looking at the Cannon Rebel series to purchase from and I was really close to doing so. However I didn't want to end up spending that much money, so, ironically, I ended up getting a "point and shoot." For $149.99, I got the Cannon PowerShot SD 1100 IS 8MP camera with a free case and 4GB 4X Kensignton SD card. I have been taking loads of shots on this thing and really love it. When I first got it, I put on the custom firmware that is available for the camera, but found it slow to navigate because of the hardware, so I removed it. I am shooting in the highest-quality JPEGs the camera can take, however, I cannot shoot in RAW with it. The pictures are amazing and I am primarily taking lanscape photography with it, but I was wondering if many people use photo-editing programs such as Lightroom and Aperture with "point and shoot" cameras like this. Any comments about this topic? I am really into photography, I just don't have the amazing budget for it.
