Hi friends. I am in the market to get a new camera and I was hoping some of you could offer some suggestions. I am willing to spend $200-$300 (obviously, the less, the better). I would prefer to buy a used/refurbished camera so long as it will be reliable, on the assumption that I will end up getting a better deal. Also, I would prefer to buy from a New York or Atlanta company/person where I can pick the camera up in person. I know very very little about photography and cameras. I will probably use awkward terminology. I basically just want a digital camera that takes good photographs of people and scenery without requiring a lot of individual-photo-customization on my part. I don't want to need to constantly change my lens, adjust my camera settings, etc, etc. Point and shoot is what I'm going for here. (I realize this will mean worse quality images, and I just want the "best of the bad" given my situation -- I love looking at wonderful photography, but I will not be taking the time to learn how to shoot good photography right now, so I want something simple). The primary reason I am interested in purchasing a camera is because I will be doing some traveling the next few months to a few places I probably won't get back to for a long time, and I would like to take some photographs that look good. I want something that takes good photos both during the day when it is bright, as well as during the night when it is dark. I like higher contrast, "sharp" looking photographs where people stand out from the background (don't know how to describe that well). Oh, and my hands always shake a little, so if the camera was good at countering that somehow, that would be nice. If you could give me a couple recommendations for my price range, that would be fantastic. My cousin is pretty into photography and she recommended some kind of used digital SLR camera, but that might be because she wants me to get into photography (really don't have the time for it right now). Will a digital SLR camera generally take better pictures than a "point-and-shoot" camera if I'm just pointing and shooting? I figured that since all my photos are going to be about the same (1-10 or so people standing 10 or so feet away against some kind of background) that I might be able to get a specific digital SLR with a specific lens that will do pretty good consistently... Thanks.
