In reply to Bob Tullis, 10 months ago

+1, Bob. I have had increasing problems using a DSLR competently over the past few years. I'm dealing with having had a stroke, and with the affected processes of an aging brain. Sometimes I get into too many manual overrides and forget to revert, later. The sophistication of the newer Auto Focus systems sometimes befuddles me and I end up with out-of-focus subjects for mysterious (to me) reasons. Lately, the DSLR outfit has also felt unnecessarily heavy to lug around. Giving it to younger family members and switching to a competent, advanced compact seems to have been good for me, and for my output. At camera club when all of our files are projected for group viewing, no one seems to know the difference. I can still make pretty good photos without the DSLR.
