Our granddaughter is graduating HS in 2011 and wants a camera. With a little luck she is also going to Maui next summer. What thoughts does anyone have in regards to cameras,sites,etc.
We have been to Maui several times and just have a simple point/shoot. We were hoping to stay in the $1,000 range for the Camera & lens and were hoping there are some camera buffs here.
Also, with the internet today is it necessary once we narrow down our search to just a few cameras is it necessary to go somehere and put these cameras in our hands before purchasing.
Thanks in advance
