I like to take landscape and wildlife shots. I had a Nikon Coolpix 990 which was sort of my pretend DSLR. It died and I decided to get an inexpensive point and shoot until the real DSLRs were affordable.

My first digicam. Great macro mode, easy to use, compact, long battery life Problems: Average movie mode, bad ISO400 photos, bad tele photos in low light (due to little aperture). After all, it got a very strange autofocus problem, that couldn't be solved, after 2.5 months of service maintenance and no visible problem solving I swapped it to other camera.
