Ok ladies, so I'm in need of a new P&S camera like NOW!! My camera died after only a year it was the Panasonic Lumix DMC - ZS19. Now it started out as a great camera, I actually LOVED it. I bought this one as an upgrade from an earlier version of the Panasonic Lumix that was purchased back in 2007. However, BOTH camera died exactly the same way... one day I turned the camera on and it would keep zooming in and out and then tell me there was a system error (or some crap like that) and it would turn off and no matter what I did I couldn't get the thing to stay on and take a photo... I sent it to Best Buy where I bought it (my warranty had Just ran out so I couldn't get it replaced) Anyways I was going to pay to have it fixed however there was nothing they could do that would cost any less than buying a replacement.
Sooo.. I am in need of a new camera. I want to stay away from that brand now after having Both cameras quit the same way. I am currently saving up to get my Canon DSLR but until I get that camera I need a point and shoot camera that I can carry with me at all times.
PLEASE help me find a good camera ASAP.. you ALL know how IMPORTANT having a nice camera on hand at all times is for us Digi addicts so go ahead and show me what you got or want!!!
