I need help!!! I am not camera savvy and don't know a whole lot about camera lingo and I am lost when it comes how or what camera setting to use when taking pictures. I purchased an Olympus C-5050 over a year ago and I still haven't figured out how to use all the menus and modes. I mean I get some great pictures by chance I guess and thenI takeothers are not so good, I need to learn what all the things mean and how to use and navigate the menus. Now that I have revealed that I have zero knowledge on that line here goes my question/problem.:?We are taking a 10 day trip in December over Christmas to the Dominican Republic...our first vacation in over 7 years so I gotta have great pictures right?!!:-). Anyway I want to purchase a small compact camera that takes great pictures and is very easy to use. I have been looking and I am thinking of purchasing the Sony DSC-T1 or the new T3. I have also looked at the Pentax Optio 4mp since it is so small as well. I guess I want a small compact camera that I can get great pictures and can get those with a point and shoot type camera. Am I way off on the cameras that I have been looking at??? Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Also if you can tell me what accessories I would want to get get for the camera you suggest. My home computer has Windows XP and I like to print photos at home as well if that helps.
Thanks so much and I look forward to any and all replies.
