Would like to get input from this illustrious group regarding possible camera selection to meet my criteria... Have 'ancient' Canon compact digital camera now, the 'S10'...still works fine, but find the output lacking...my wife always complains about a 'lack of sharpness' in the prints I make and also the colors being off a bit too. So, considering finally getting a new camera... Would like a camera with the following if possible: 1. Very sharp photos - assume that this also relates to depth of field issues too??? Mostly print at 4x6, with occassional larger prints. Otherwise, viewing photos on my 21" monitor.... 2. Good color rendition 3. Wide angle lens (hate the typical digicam focum on ultra-zoom at the expense of wide angle...) as I like to take photos of buildings,street scenes, etc when I travel, so, for me, limited zoom is OK... 4. Compact size (if possible), around size of S10 would be nice 5. Optical Viewfinder - I always use it on my S10, LCD uses up battery too quickly - but maybe this has changed since S10.... 6. Some manual controls - automatic feature is OK, but like option to overide at times... 7. Budget - somewhere between $300 - $500 I think. There may be other issues, but the above are the most important ones I think... One question is whether or not I can achieve the results I want in a compact digicam or does it require a DSLR? Thanks for any and all input!
