As some of you may know,
I was on the lookout for a new point and shoot camera.

Yes, I dropped my camera, it broke and that's that.

In fact, I dropped it on my field trip taking photos for this post:

Walking into Winter

Luckily, I dropped it on my way home rather than my way out.

Needless to say, I was in need of a new quick and easy camera.

Just wanted to share the new purchase.

After some quick research from the tried and true consumer reports resource,
I took my list of recommended and headed to my favorite discount store,
your favorite and mine


I know. It has it's draw backs, but let's face it.
Wal-Mart has the most competitive prices around.

So here it is:
PowerShot A490

And the best part of all
I know.

Many of you encouraged me to go with Canon.
I took your advice and voila.

More pictures will follow.
It even takes quick video
(let's see if I could post something like that in the future!)

What camera do YOU recommend for a point and shoot?

As always, thanks for visiting
