damnit all to hell (need a new camera)

The lcd screen just bled out for some stupid reason so now its time to shop for a new one.

What do you guys have? Nothing professional, just something slim that can fit in my pocket. Preference is above 7mp. I heard the sony cybershots have bad red eye. I liked my casio exslim but im open to something new also.

pricerange is nothing over $300

My first one made it about 25' before it went.. I took it down to 60+ ft after that (i mention that as many have reported them having a depth sensor they use for warranty claims) supposedly rated to 33...
I emailed them and they said to send it in. I did and had a new one a week later..


This one just stopped working.. I emailed them and they offered to fix or replace... So.... I guess I wont be upgrading again just yet


btw.. How do you open boxes bro?
I have had mine in oceans, lakes, jet skiing, let me nephew use it, froze it (left in car in -f weather), its been dropped and thrown around..

I turned it on, took a couple test shots with it, and the LCD stopped working. GF got it for me for my b-day, Jess, Lady Yamaha. I have the DSLRs, SLRs, and just don't have a P&S and thought a sturdy one would be a good idea. Good to know they have good customer service, we just need to send it back and they would take care of us.
