I've a digital camera since 2005 and it started going bad maybe 1 or 2 years ago. Basically most of the time when I want to take a photo it turns automatically in filming mod. I have to wait/shake the camera in order for it to turn back to photo mod and that's pretty annoying; even more annoying if I have to take a quick photo. It's a Canon digital ixus 50. When I had time to travel I liked to take landscapes and many other things. I like detailed photos so I guess that a 12 mega pixel camera would be awesome (vs the 5 of mine). Do you have a good/bad experience with a particular model? I don't want a professional camera, nor a cheap/basic one. Here are some photos I took. PS:I'm going to upload them with resizing, going to take some time. http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/158/img0338bb.jpg [Broken] Uploaded with ImageShack.us That was in Peru in 2005, near Pachacamac's ruins in south of Lima. http://img825.imageshack.us/img825/1772/img1555do.jpg [Broken] Buenos Aires in 2006. http://img857.imageshack.us/img857/5292/1005j.jpg [Broken] Uploaded with ImageShack.us Mendoza, Argentina in 2006. http://img543.imageshack.us/img543/872/1138w.jpg [Broken] [/URL] At Iguazu falls in early 2007. http://img827.imageshack.us/img827/1747/img2616g.jpg [Broken] Uploaded with ImageShack.us Ants eating common fig in Argentina. http://img52.imageshack.us/img52/6485/img3081p.jpg [Broken] Uploaded with ImageShack.us Caen, France in early 2009. http://img844.imageshack.us/img844/9231/img3833q.jpg [Broken] Uploaded with ImageShack.us Montréal, Canada in early 2011.
