    Default Snapshot question

    When you ladies are just taking snaps, do you have a different camera for that? I was thinking of getting a P&S so that I can quickly capture cute moments with my baby. Usually by the time I put the lens on and adjust the settings, she is fussing and does not want her picture taken anymore, or I missed a sweet smile or something.
    I currently do not have a P&S and all because mine broke. I have been using my phone to take pictures, but I think I could get better quality snaps from an actual camera.

    yes...i have an old P&S ... well..i bought it in 2006 for Christmas but it's getting a little sensitive on me already but it takes ok photos I could use a new one now though! But maybe for Christmas 2010 I always use it though to take snaps of my kids. It's just so much faster and always within reach. My dslr is always in its bag somewhere put away. I am always using my P&S! I take it with me to places when I don't want to take my bigger camera. I think having a P&S comes in handy sometimes.

    Honestly, my camera is still new, so my P&S has taken a back seat. Once I get used to my DSLR, I will take snaps with my p&s. I miss my p&s b/c it's so much easier to lug around.

    I have a P&S, but I've used it maybe 3 times since I got my DSLR. Seriously....we had to hunt for it on the night of our Anniversary for the waitress to use to take a picture of us. It hadn't been used in about a year.

    I just leave a good indoor lens on my camera and it takes no more time to get that out then it does the P&S.

    my PnS is my back pocket camera. I bring it when I can't lug around the DSLR. It is getting less use these days, but I still use it at least once a week.

    Yep, I call it my "purse camera" or the "little camera." I just like that I can have it just in case a photo op arises while we're running to the store or riding in the car. Plus I like to have it to take little videos of the girls for grandparents. Otherwise, I use the "big camera."

    I don't use my P&S anymore, the flash kills me. I just stick my DSLR in auto and at least that flash isn't as obnoxious. My DSLR definitely takes better snaps in auto than my P&S.

    you should always leave a lens on your camera, more risk of getting dirt/dust
    my dslr in auto is better than my p&s in auto so for those quick shots I just use that. My p&s has video so until dh gets his new hd video camera in the mail I keep it around for the funny stuff I want to capture
