Maybe not exactly an EDC question but I am looking for opinions. My wife and I are not happy with our photographic equipments sharpness so I have returned the canon sx130is and am looking for a new camera. The camera is to be used to document the growth of our new born so it is important. I am leaning towards an entry level dslr but that would take some convincing for my wife. My question is are the entry level dslrs, such as Nikon 3100, Canon EOS Rebel T3, Pentax K-R and the like, worth the extra heft and price tag or do you know of a point and shoot that would come close to the dslrs and give crisp pictures? My fear is we already tried the $200 price range and were not happy. This usually means more money (unless there are hidden gems of technology out there that you can point us to) to get better equipment. Now we are talking about $300 or more on a point and shoot and to my way of thinking is might as well spend the extra money and get some good gear with, when set on auto, will be just as easy for her to use. Modern dslr cameras will fit quite easily into a diaper bag and with a 55mm lens won’t weigh it down all that much. Am I off base here and should go with a different point and shoot or am I thinking clear and on track to photographic and marital bliss?
