a point and shoot camera
Some of you may remember that I bought a cheap compact (point-and-shoot) camera (Samsung L730) I bought in June 2008. Well, the main reason for getting that camera was the price and the compactness. Unfortunately, on the 3rd last day of the trip to Western Australia, the camera stopped working completely. I was unable to turn on the camera at all.
Does it worth fixing? Nah. Laurent and I decided that we shall get a new compact camera.
A compact point and shoot camera does a great job in many situations. For one, there are many situations I simply do not need the DSLR, or better yet, can't be bothered to carry the DSLR (and all the accessories).
So, we decided to get a replacement. Since I already have a few Sony branded cameras, to Don's dismay it makes sense to get another Sony brand camera. (Sony and Apple are pretty much Don's top two hated brands) Despite keeping in line with other Sony products, I am be sure that the very useful Sony GPS tracking device work with the picture taken on it.
The second requirement is waterproof. Why not? The waterproof would simply give us more freedom to use the camera near the water at very least. In Don's language, this waterproof feature means having extra option/ability which Don is very concerned.
And the candidate is Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX5. A high-ish end compact digital camera that has all today's modern features as well as the required waterproofing.

Still, unlike Don, I don't own any camcorder at all.
BTW, I bought it last month during Myer's special discount (15% off) and on top of that, I got a spare battery for free.
And finally, to Don: Antony is poor.
