My camera is the well-received Canon PowerShot A620.
Are you “serious” hobbyists through laughing now? Fine, then we’ll continue.
Aside from the fact that it’s a bargain when you consider everything it offers (specific recommendations here, here, here, and here), what I really like about it is the great Macro mode for taking closeup shots. I like using this for foliage. Above is one of several such shots I’ll be posting.
