My Favorite Camera

We all like to take pictures of our collections – either to share or for insurance purposes.  However, finding a good digital camera from the vast number available is not always easy.

What are 14 Requirements of a good digital camera?


  • Pocket-sized
  • Small but not so small that it can’t easily be held
  • Have a good sized LCD viewer
  • Easy to turn on/off (slide switch)
  • Tripod mountable
  • Memory stick preferred
  • Internal memory of 8+ Gigs
  • Mega pixels of 10+
  • ‘Steady Shot’ feature
  • Touch screen controls
  • Zoom – ‘5  power’
  • Metal case
  • Movie mode
  • Micro setting for details

The only camera I have found to date that meets all of the above requirements is the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC T700.  This camera is easy to operate while switching from one mode to another is simple with the touch screen feature.  Touch….touch….touch and you’re ready to go.

I have used other digital cameras but have found that the Sony Cyber-Shot far excels what one needs to take a good, clear picture – day or night.  This camera will be liked by both beginners and experienced photographers.

Once you have pictures of your collection, store them ono a CD or memory stick to keep as a record for insurance purposes.  For extra safety, keep a copy offsite in your safety deposit box or business safe.
