After about a year of searching, I finally found my camera and I love it! I have been searching for what felt like forever for a compact camera with a built in wide angle lens that was reasonably priced.
I had heard many people speak fondly of the Kodak with wide angle, but when I researched it further I found it had a plastic lens and that Kodak had an overall reputation of having lot of issues. In fact, many of the local stores avoided or stopped selling Kodak all together because of too many customer complaints and returns. This, despite recomendation, left me too timid about making an on-line purchase.
The camera I purchased is the Panasonic Lumix wide angle camera (has a glass lens). I purchased it for $199 at Circuit City - click here for more info http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/shop/Cameras-Camcorders/Digital-Cameras/Lumix-Digital-Cameras/model.DMC-TZ4S_11002_7000000000000005702 (image below from panasonic website)
I was given a great opportunity to test out my new camera with two new listings I got this week www.5905Braelinn.com for some examples.
The pictures turned out very clear, was super easy to use, informend me when there was too much backlight, and took great pictures.
