Digital point-and-shoot cameras

If the Canon Rebel DSLR is too much hassel, the mLab offers multiple point-and-shoot digital cameras which are much easier to handle, store, and use.

The Canon Powershot G2 (PDF) and The Panasonic Lumix (PDF) are both solid choices. The main difference is one uses compact flash storage (CF) while the other uses secure digital (SD)- but don't worry, we'll set you up with a memory card (and reader if you need it) when you check out the camera.
