Our prior camera was a Canon sx260hs. Very good for the money point and shoot camera. Unfortunately, the back lighting on the display quit. Before that, the automatic lens door quit working. It's about 18 months old, never dropped or abused. I want to send it back to Canon and see if they'll do anything for us. Maybe they will replace it, maybe I'm wishful thinking
We've always bought Canon in the past. This time we thought we would roll the dice on a different manufacturer and have always heard Nikon makes good quality products.
