Blog: Technology As An Organizing Tool
My Technology Wish List (Part 3)

Dear Santa,

This is probably the last chance I'll have to write to you before you have to pack up your sleigh, but there's one more thing I'd love to see under my Christmas tree this year, and that is a digital camera. I know that I already have one, and I was delighted with it when it was given to me a few years ago, but you know how it is with technology - every year they come out with something bigger and better (or maybe I should say "smaller and better"). So, if you have it in your heart to give me a new camera, these are the features that would really make my heart sing.
  • Large LCD Screen on the back, that I don't have to keep opening and closing
  • Uses a memory card so I can upload images to my computer without a cable
  • Compact enough to fit in my pocket so I can take it with me everywhere I go
  • Uses removable rechargeable batteries so I can always carry spares and not have to plug my camera into the wall outlet to recharge it
  • Takes large images that are sharp and suitable for printing or desktop wallpaper
  • A flash that works well indoors without me having to push a lot of buttons
  • Auto-focus and Auto-exposure
As a former serious amateur SLR user, I'd also appreciate the ability to override the auto-focus and auto-exposure when I'm feeling really creative, but to be honest, I don't know how often that would happen.

I would actually be quite content to buy the camera myself, if you could just give me a list of cameras with the above features. I used the Find Your Perfect Digital Cameratool on Amazon, but it gave me thousands of results - and how is a busy woman supposed to find the time to sift through them all?

Thank you for your time, Santa. I hope you have a safe journey.

Your friend,

I had the same problem when I was trying to buy my digital camera (which arrived last week--yay!). I had great success with the Pogue-O-Matic from David Pogue (NYTimes writer and author of lots of the Missing Manual books). If you go to DavidPogue dot com and scroll down until you see the Pogue-O-Matic link and click, David himself walks and talks his way across your screen and guides you through your tech decisions. Neato!

Thanks, Julie! The Pogue-O-Matic includes more important options and is easier to use than the tool at Amazon. Also, I have a couple of David's books, so it was nice to have him visit my office and give me some personalized advice!
