canonian,

Back when you bought the Coolpix 950 "and I bought the Coolpix 800 :)" you did not have tons of reviews online telling you what they think and thousands of messages about people trashing a camera because a brick wall looked horrible in Photoshop at 300% zoom.

The 800 was before the rotating screen, wasn't it?

In any event here is camera that will probably fit the bill unless you read so many reviews that finally someone finds a problem with it.

I'm well aware that there's always someone saying something bad if you read enough reviews. When I meant the tilt-screen cameras always seems to be unusable, I meant things like the Casio TRYX having no zoom whatsoever.

They also have a newer model the MV900

Thanks for the tips! I'll check those models out.

The new mv900 has wifi and can talk to your smartphone that can take a photo remotely!

Aaaaarrrrrgggg! I'm not really into smartphones, and my phone doesn't have WiFi. But clearly this means that remote shutter releases have probably gone the way of film cameras (to piggyback on recent posts here). All the new cameras will have WiFi-release instead.

Phil
