Default camera people

Ben promises that if he gets a new job, I get a new camera (it's my consolation prize for him loving his job and me hating mine). I love my Canon Powershot. I really do. I like how portable it is, I like it's size, I like it's price point because I drop it a lot. But, I want something that takes better action shots of the Pup. Better low light pictures in the house.

Suggestions??

I started out with a Nikon D60 and upgraded to the Nikon D5000. I loved both. Both are entry ish* level cameras... settings to take pictures with AND manual to play around with. They were both really easy for me to use and I had no previous camera experience, but I'm able to use the Manual setting 100% of the time now!

I have the Panasonic g3. It's light and portable, and has a sturdy aluminium body, but takes really good quality photos, can be used as fully manual and you can buy lots of different lenses for it (the pancake lens is permanently attached to mine).

It's not a dslr, but its almost a dslr, and the pic quality is just as good as some dslrs.

You can also use it on auto with some really good results, and you can get great low light pics (again, pancake lens recommended!!).

I always had canon power shots too the g3 is pretty good for out and about, I usually sling the strap over me and off we go. It's small enough not to be a nuisance.

I just don't use any camera as much as I used to.... And often can't be bothered so use my phone!!!!

But my recommendation is g3 for portability, weight, quality of pics and versatility.

You like your canon, why not a rebel?

Yeah, but that's an unrealistic portrayal unless the adorable bat-ear-fluffied puppy comes with it.
