Everyone yearns for professional snapshot, but with a simple point and shoot that might be a problem. Alternatively, you could opt for a more expensive DSLR setup but given the complexity of those cameras it’s an up hill battle to achieve the shots that you so desire. Try the Lumix GF3 from Panasonic. It maybe not give quite sharp as DSLR but in an easier to use setup. For me, Lumix GF3 is good for the beginner camera user. Its not necessary to buy DSLR to get a good picture too. With the power of 12 MP camera, it sure gives great quality of image taken. Besides, it came in many different colour that attractive.
