Me again.....unfortunately, I live in the middle of no where. Literally, and am forced to most of my ordering online. Therefore, hands on trying and buying is extremely limited. Yes, no best buys, circuit citys, etc...not even a wal mart. Ugh.
Try living on an island
The only way I can get to any of the places in which you've mentioned...is either by plane or boat :lol: Therefore, I too have to purchase online.
Groceries being the exception. Even then, I have to get to the stores (plural, as in 2)
before closing (6pm) and if you forget something on Sunday...you're out of luck-they're closed.
Anyway. I take it you have narrowed down your choice between 3 cameras? Have you sought out customer reviews of these cameras; such as on Amazon etc.? Looked at photographs taken with these particular cameras?
I would follow it up by going to forums dedicated to these particular brands, ask users who may have first hand knowledge of the camera you are looking at. They will better be able to tell you how that particular camera performs in certain situations.
After having done this, you should find that you're ready to take the next step...the purchasing of one.
