My S3IS is 6 Years Old This Month. Replace With???
May 21, 2012

I've never kept a digital camera this long. It's been a good one (and still is) Can't tell you how many times it's been dropped. It has a few battle scars but still takes darn good pictures! Every time I try to research a new BRIDGE CAMERA, there's really nothing that is worth upgrading for especially with the slower lenses. The expert advice here has always been "keep your S3".

So, how about now? Is there something out there (bridge camera) that blows the IQ of the S3 out of the water? Faster lens, brighter, less noise in low light? HD video that lets you zoom while taking movies. Hotshoe? (that one isn't a deal breaker). Larger sensors yet? CCD or CMOS? I'm so rusty at this I wouldn't know where to begin!

Please don't suggest any dSLRs. I know I'd be SO MUCH happier with my photos but I'm not willing to carry all the equipment, change out lenses and spend that much money.

Monica (UZi x2) (Canon S3)
