We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Over the past few years the iCamera (aka iPhone, etc) has largely replaced regular cameras. People don't want to carry even small cameras around unless for special situations, and full-sized cameras are rapidly disappearing except for professional shoots.
If you are old-fashioned like me, you carry a pocket point and shoot when you go places. Smartphone cameras can be temperamental in cold weather, and do not like to be dropped on rocks or soaked in rain.
That's a lot of money for a point and shoot. Why would someone care about wifi and gps in a camera? You can buy a pretty decent camera these days for around $100. But then, I've taken vacations with no more than a couple pictures to show for it.
