Hi, new to the forum and I am hoping for some great advice. Im looking for a compact camera for my wife. She is a point and shoot type of girl and will only be using the camera for holidays, parties, pictures of our kids etc. My budget is around 150.
Ive considered 3 cameras, Ixsus 115hs, ixsus 220hs and samsung wb600. Are there any other models I need to consider. They dont have to be current models. Thank you.

Hi and welcome.

TBH, all of today's well known brand names take great pics!

The Canon 115 having the larger screen than the 220.

The Samsung wb600 has more zoom than the Canons.

So, you won't go far wrong with any of them. But if shooting children, then Pre-focussing is a must Click to find out more (http://www.photographytips.net/pre-focus-every-time/)

Don't forget, post processing is an important part of photography and should be used to sharpen and enhance pictures taken with any camera. If you don't have an imaging editor, then use the one in my signature below. There are 32 video tutorials to get you started. The most useful is the Adjusting levels (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/06_Levels/06_Levels.html) and for the advanced user. The Curves tool (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/07_Curves/07_Curves.html) is a must (it's my favourite all-in-one adjuster). My Resize-Crop-Sharpen tutorial below, will get your pics ready for the internet :cool:
