The snap that got away…

…in addition to needing a good phone headset, I need a camera phone that is super forgiving of my crappy photography skills. I’d even settle for a small, quality digital camera that can easily fit in my purse. Any suggestions?

Here’s the snap that got away this morning (taken with my Treo 650). It’s a mother and baby fox. I felt like busting out a John Denver tune when I saw them, but I couldn’t remember the words beyond “Colorado Rocky Mountain Hiiiiiiigh…I’ve doo doo dooooo dee doo doo dooooo dee daaaaaa…”


UPDATE Thanks for the suggestions, D.N., Sandy, and Mike! Per your advice and a bit of research, I went with the Cannon PowerShot SD750 Digital ELPH and LOVE it! I shoot like pro now (and am annoying my family with the following recurring plea: “Oh! Let me take a picture of you doing that!”).

    Our primary camera is a Canon Digital ELPH (SD300; see for a list). It’s the size of a credit card and less than an inch thick. Not only will it fit in a purse — it will fit in a pocket.

    I’m on my 2nd Canon ELPH (SD550) — Had an SD200 for 4 years and it still works! Great zoom, clear pics – just love it because it’s so small and easy to use. (don’t laugh, the best deals are on — go right on line and you don’t have to even watch the channel! As for your song lyrics, being a Colorado-ian or -ite, or whatever……. you should know that song 🙂 Go and brushup on it at:
    ….the colorado rocky mountain high
    Ive seen it rainin fire in the sky
    The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullabye
    Rocky mountain high (high colorado) rocky mountain high (high colorado)…..

    Some useful infos:
    The pocket-sized 7.1 Megapixel PowerShot SD550
    Digital ELPH and 5.0 Megapixel PowerShot SD450
    Digital ELPH cameras,join Canon’s
    line-up between the SD500 and SD400 models which
    will continue to be available. The new PowerShot
    SD550 and 450 Digital ELPH cameras offer consumers
    a big 2.5-inch LCD screen, while retaining
    Canon’s famed functionality and
    optical viewfinder. Additionally, the new cameras
    feature a new UI display designed to capitalize on
    the larger screen size.
