Since the moment I got my DSLR camera, I have been afraid to part with it and carry it with me everywhere. I absolutely love taking photos and don't want to miss a moment. I've watched a photography DVD series and read a million photography blogs and downloaded an app on how to use the DSLR and I'm signing up for a photography class. I LOVE the camera. It is simply not convenient to take everywhere. I decided I needed to get a high quality point and shoot to keep in my bag when I didn't want to lug around my “real” camera.

So. I researched and researched to find a camera that wasn't expensive, was small, and has manual controls. Voila! I found the Nikon P310.
I settled on this camera after reading reviews and seeing the price drop drastically. I absolutely love it – I am still playing around with the settings and learning the manual controls, but am thrilled with the depth of field and photo quality of this little camera.
There is a new one out so the price on this one has dropped a lot. I'm very happy with it and obviously opted for the cheaper one… And would definitely make that choice again.
The Nikon P310 is available on Amazon or Best Buy.
