ZS8, ZS19, Sony WX150? Going to Florida Wednesday!!!
Jul 15, 2012

I am in need of a camera by Wednesday morning for a trip to Florida to visit my best friend who just moved there. It's going to be hot, humid and raining. The IS on my epl1 isn't working and my daughter needs it to get some 4H stuff done this week with it at the 45mm anyway.

The ZS8, ZS19, Sony WX150 and, of course the expensive canon sx230 and 260 are pretty much the only cameras that I think I can pick up locally. I am somewhat torn. I wonder how much zoom I will need, and even though I know these cameras aren't as great as my epl1, I still would like to take some decent photos, especially on the kayak tour and some of the other nature and zoo places we might visit. I see DPReview likes the canon, but, distortion and ca? really? And I don't want to spend more than 250.

Anyone tried all of these?
