I need a new camera friends.
My poor Canon has been through well, you know where and back. The lens protector on it broke awhile back and now all my pictures have a nice black dot on them in the right corner. It also smokes. Yes, that's right, smokes. It's a great camera though. It takes amazing pictures and has held up through college parties, water, snow, family reunions, fireworks.. You name it. BUT... I can tell it's starting to feel the usage wearing and tearing on it.
So... I'm in search for something new and better. The older I get the more and more I become obsessed with taking pictures. I will be the first to tell you, I honestly know nothing about cameras or photography, BUT taking pictures makes me happy. And I do it quite often. I think it will be a great investment especially when I am overseas. I want to get the most out of that experience as I can.
So, that's why I am coming to you guys! I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions about what type of camera I should go for. Like I said, I have a Canon Elph Series right now. It's a great camera. Should I stick with Canon? Or test out new waters with Nikon, Olympus, Fujifilm, etc.? I'm wanting something along this style:
