So my camera broke today! FML! It fell off a chair and part of the lens bent and the lens wouldn't go back in so I tried to push it back in (potentially making it worse?). It's still under warranty, but I not longer have the original receipt and it's needed to make the warranty effective (and the warranty says it doesn't cover accidents). I could pay to get it fixed (if it's fixable), but the camera wasn't that good (seriously...go read review for the Nikon Coolpix s220....none of them are good). So maybe this is my chance to get a better camera, although I was hoping my next camera purchase would be a DSLR (which isn't really in the budget at the moment).
So, looks like I'll be camera shopping soon. Right now I have about $150 for a new camera. Any suggestions? What are some good cameras? What do you use?
