Thank you all so much for your opinions, I'm looking at all of them. All of you take amazing pictures.
Patrick, right now I have a Sony Cybershot 6.0 and I just don't like it. Don't get me wrong, it had taken some great shots, but they are few and far between and I hate playing with settings. I can never take any motion shots, like a bird flying or just spreading it's wings and there is such a long pause before I can take more then one picture and I miss it.
Lately I've actually been using my phone camera more, I like the pictures better, but you can't do much with it, no flash or zoom.
Brad, that is exactly what I need is a camera for dummies...
Ed, knowing that you have used that camera in a spot with "The Worlds Worst weather", I will seriously read all the info. on this one.
I've been in touch with Anna, another incredible photographer, she has a Sony Cybershot HX100V.
Thanks again, you have no idea how much I appreciate all of your input.
