For taking GREAT quality pics I love my Canon Rebel Xsi. It’s lighter that you would anticipate for the size, but still a bit bulky. I love it for shots of important situations, etc but just carrying it around on my neck I’m afraid of bumping it into things and such.
A little bulky for just carrying around (along with the diaper bag, the baby, the stroller, the cell phone, the purse, etc.) for everyday pictures. Is there a particular point-and-shoot you recommend for good quality pictures but it’s more portable and easy to just carry around in your back pocket or on your wrist?
