Today I am reseaching new cameras. I am in great need of a new one. I had planned to buy a new one at the beginning of the school year, but the funds were not there and we have gotten along with our old broken one. I really want one that has a very fast shutter speed...I like to be able to take several photos at a quick rate. When you have four children you have to be able to move fast. I have read several reviews and I think I am going to go with a Sony cybershot. It is around $350.00...mid range of prices...and it has great reviews. I still have some things to check out and I want to actully play with it in the store before i I purchase it. I will keep you updated!
