This morning I saw an interesting thread on UBIRD. Norm Jenson was discussing cameras that were a bit smaller and user friendly, that could more easily be carried around while birding, but were still capable of taking decent bird photographs.
I wouldn't call myself a photographer in any sense of the word, but I do enjoy photographing my travels and experiences. I've always been looking for the perfect camera that is versatile enough to cover my wide variety of needs, while being small enough to lug around with me, and also one that fits my limited budget.
I currently own a nice point and click that takes pretty good landscape photos, people photos, and my artsy photos. I've yet to find a good point/shoot that does all that as well as taking a few decent nature photographs. My current camera absolutely sucks at nature photography; I either get a poor quality zoomed out photo, or a blurry zoomed in photo.
So, birders, what point and shoot cameras do you use while birding? Norm's suggestion was Canon's SX40 HS, but I'm wondering what other suggestions are out there.
