Right now, I have a small Sony Cybershot DiCa.. And in exactly a year from now, I'm going traveling in parts of Asia. I'm really hoping to get a good camera by then - but something that's not TOO expensive for a teen. I've only had experience with 2 cameras; one was my Cybershot, and another was one I was given to as a gift - I think it was a Canon...Not sure exactly what it was. My budget is $100 ~ $300...Anyone have any advice? Oh, and I need people's opinions; which do you prefer, a normal manual camera, or a digital?
