New Camera

I’ve struggled to find a replacement for my old Nikon Coolpix.  I scratched its lens sometime this spring and have purchased (and subsequently returned) two cameras since then.  I asked for guidance on a camera purchase about a month ago and got a few comments and several emails offering suggestions.

As a quick refresher, I wanted a camera that:

  • Point and Shoot Camera
  • 10x Zoom (minimum)
  • 12 Megapixels (minimum)
  • Small enough to fit in jeans pockets
I ultimately decided to buy a Lumix DMC-ZS19.  
This camera definitely fits the guidelines. It is a Point and Shoot with a 20x Zoom, with 14.1 Megapixels.  I’ve had this camera for a couple weeks now and have been pretty pleased with it so far.  There are a lot more functions on this camera than my previous Coolpix — I haven’t had much time play with all of the settings yet, I’m happy with the automatic settings for now.
You can see some pictures from this new camera here, here, here, here, here.
