Canon PowerShot CameraI got this Canon Power Shot camera from Camera Land NY because of their great prices and customer service. I decided on the Power Shot because of the great zoom, HD video capability, and ease of usage. There is a 35x optical zoom and combined with the digital zoom up to 140x. I found the camera extremely easy to use and the quality of the video and pictures are incredible. I find the SLR cameras confusing so this point and shoot was a very good option. These cameras are also budget friendly. Below are some samples of pictures and videos I have taken with the camera:
