Here is the camera that my husband gave me when he bought a professional one. It is a FujiFilm FinePix S9100. Digital Camera Info's web site says it has enough features to confuse a Ph.D. student! That's OK, I'll take my time learning the advanced functions. Right now, I'll just get used to the automatic ones. It's a pretty good non-SLR consumer camera and, considering I'm a novice, this camera will probably keep me interested for years.
