I just spent the morning on-site at a customer's location and was
thinking that it really was too bad that I wasn't documenting my work
with pictures. We do that all the time in my shop and I used to do
so on-site with my Sony Mavica CD-1000 camera. That camera took
GREAT pictures but its just too darned big to pack around anymore.
So: I'm looking for a small camera that has a decent macro mode and
reasonable zoom range - 5:1 would be great. Great battery life from
rechargeable "AA" cells would be a bonus.
This doesn't have to be the cheapest camera available - I don't mind
spending extra money for extra performance.
Do note that I'm NOT looking for a professional or semi-pro camera
like Canon's high-end stuff.
I should also mention that I live in Canada and would prefer to
purchase from somewhere in North America.
