I'm a real estate appraiser, and I don't know a lot about the in-depth camera minutiae, and frankly, I'm not too interested in it. I just want an easy to take, good picture. I probably take 7,500 photos per year, and 99.9% are for business. Price is a secondary consideration if I can find the right camera. My primary requirements are: 1) good quality photos almost all the time; 2) ease of use; 3) a 25+-zoom capability; 4) a viewfinder; and 5) a camera that uses AA batteries. The first four items are deal breakers.
For years I used an Olympus C-750, which essentially met all my needs; the small viewing screen was the only negative issue. However, the years of use had taken its toll. For example, the camera had a broken battery door hinge, which I was able to keep closed with a heavy rubber band. In short, it was just worn-out. I purchased a Fuji Film Fine Pix S2800 HD. The problem with this camera is about 7% of the pictures are blurry. It requires that I take two or three shots of each scene to ensure at least one good picture. Yes, I've read the instructions.
Any camera replacement suggestions would be appreciated.
