    Total camera newb here, so if I wanted to buy say a $150 point and shoot, what would my brethren recommend?

    There are actually some pretty good P&S cameras in the $150 ~ $200 range.

    B&H Photo is good to deal with.

    Canon PowerShot A2000 IS Digital Camera - $164.95

    +1 on B&H. I don't know much about P&S cameras though.

    Perhaps it isn't Nikon that is backwards. Have you ever used any other high end photo equipment? Leica or better? They operate a lot like Nikon does but of course all are alittle different.

    Canon has come on as a top shelf producer of DSLRs. Quite impressive reviews for their new stuff. I would have certainly considered one if I didn't already own a bunch of Nikon glass.

    Canon fan here, but I also like the way Nikons shoot. They both make good cameras. Can't go wrong with either one.

    Well I'm just thinking compared to the rest of the world (or here, anyway). We read left to right, yet the Nikon light meter "increases" from right to left. Most things get tighter when threaded to the right, Nikon lenses tighten to the left. Just seems strange to me. :dunno:

    The rotation for zooming of the lens can make sense either way, so that doesn't really matter, it's just the opposite of Canon.
