Are you a mom on the go that needs a good digital camera?

First, let’s start with the Nikon Coolpix 5400. This point and click camera is reasonably price, starting at $165. It has 5.1 megapixels with a 4x optical zoom. Overall, users who reviewed this camera were happy with their results. One thing several did suggest was that the memory card that came with the camera wasn’t big enough. But is any memory card really big enough when it comes to pictures of our kids. I know mine never are!

The next point and click camera is the Canon PowerShot Pro Series S3 IS. This is one of the pricier cameras, starting at around $289. It has 6 megapixels with 12x stabilizing zoom. It isn’t really small enough to put in your pocket, but the reviews are pretty good. The stabilizing zoom enabled many users to make some pretty good mini-home movies. On average, the Canon PowerShot Pro got 4 1/2 stars.

Now for my digital camera. I am on a limited budget–due to 4 kids. And I needed something I could put in my pocket. So I went with the Polaroid i533 digital camera. This has 5.1 megapixels and 3x optical zoom. I bought my camera almost a year ago, and it cost me about $100. For the price, I think I got my money’s worth. I would like it if it had better optical zoom. But I look at it this way. If one of my kids accidentally breaks my camera, I am not out a ton of money. I think the Polaroid i533 is a very family friendly camera that I can grab on the go.
