First time posting here
long time (at least 5yrs didnt upgrade or purchase new ones)
current one is Olympus 5Mp only so dont know how much the technologies have changed.
currently looking at either Sony or Panasonic ones
need to be easy to use, no need complicated instruction since parents will also be using it so no need to be complicating
and need to be tough since i afraid that it drop by myself or parents drop it then it gone so having tough digital camera will help it survived... hopefully
use for overseas tours and need record either 720p or HD video
need storage media like microsd card or SD card or other storage medias...
need a screen protector for the lcd screen too unless the LCD screen is scratch proof...(any brand recommended or those made in japan ones can already) think i leave out the len cover since i dont think have such len cover protector or the image be lesser quality due to the pasting of it on the len
Will purchasing the digital camera at this week PC show 2010 be cheaper or with more gifts
Budget at $500...will top up extra $150 more if fit the usuage
