    Recently my camera fell off a shelf and now has problems and many of the pictures I have taken after the fall are unclear ( I use a COOLPIX S8200). I am picky about cameras, and I need one that can take nice crisp, clear, and well focused pictures. So now, do any of you have suggestions? And please post something taken by your camera.

    You already have a my favorite brand Nikon. All the pictures I have posted (you can see the albums on my page or 3 of them in the signature line) are taken w/ my Nikon D60, some w/ a nikkor lens others w/ a tamron lens Is there a reason you didn't want to go w/ Coolpix again?

    No, I just want to try something new, I like the brand Nikon though.

    I've got a FujiFilm FinePix camera that takes excellent pictures. It has many settings, and you can even record your voice over the photo.
    Here is a picture I have taken with it.

    Currently I own a Nikon J1 and I find it not only super easy to use but gives very clear images. also the continuous shooting mode is great for animals (and little sisters!) who wont sit still!

    (maybe not the greatest photo from my camera, but seriously the continuous shoot is a blessing!)
