One would think a Canon EOS-7D monster camera with a full frame sensor is enough, but for me it isn’t! Or rather – it is too much camera sometimes, at 1.6 lbs to lug. And my Blackberry cell phone takes terrible pictures, especially in low light situations. Hence the new acquisition, a Nikon Coolpix S8000 and a steal at $250. The 10x optical zoom wide-angle lens, the 14 Mp pictures and the snappy shutter made me buy it instead of a Canon model.
