Many of us want a camera that is easy to use and can be carried easily in a purse or maybe a backpack. Well my answer to that would be the simple and easy to use point and shoot camera. You will find that Canon, Nikon and other manufacturers are making some really nice point and shoot cameras these days. All you have to do is read the reviews and you will find that they are awesome. They also are the best when it comes to being simple to use. They make an excellent Christmas gift, birthday gift or just a camera to take with you to college.
