Room for Improvement

Since starting this blog, something has become more and more obvious to me.

I direly need a new camera. The one I have is only a few years old. However, it takes forever to turn on, does not have a micro-zoom (or whatever the take pictures of things, like food, close up feature is called), somehow it needs to be really bright or the picture comes out fuzzy, even with the flash a lot of the time.

Just generally, it's no longer cutting it.

I want a small one that I can put in my pocket. I can't tell you how much I loved being able to keep my camera in my side pocket while hiking the Inka Trail. Easy access = key, even for a camera.

It has to be easy to use. I've been known to threaten physical violence against electronics, and mean it.

Ideally, it would be able to take pictures of the beautiful vistas from hikes and ocean visits, antics of friends and glamor shots of my kitchen adventures (food porn) all equally comparably well.

And probably some other features I want but am forgetting.

So I ask, what do you use? What should I look for? Do you know the perfect camera for me?
