I'm on the market for a new digital camera. My existing camera -- a Nikon CoolPix 3100 (discontinued model now, ha) is over three years old and has had its fair share of beatings + there are other things wrong with it, so it won't be long before it finally kicks the bucket. Therefore, I am off to go do some camera shopping tomorrow (I'd like a new camera in my hand at this time tomorrow. ;) ).
What brands do you guys feel are the top contenders? Nikon, Canon, Olympus?
Any good/bad experiences with the newer Nikon CoolPix models? Canon PowerShot models?
