What camera do you like better? If you don't like the camera then you def should sell it.

my brother in law has a nikkon D60 and even though its less than 1 fps more but its so much smoother in its oicture taking and his pictures in general.

though i did call a photographer last night, and he said he will help readjust the settings on the camera, in addition, for some reason anythime i take a picture it has to be doe at least 3 times, bec the first time it forsure wont come out good,

with all due respect, I think it's time for you to read the manual!

u know how many times ive read it, i know it sounds like i havent read it, but its more than that, its a certain feel of a camera that u can either like or not,  i know cameras in a sense to know when i dont like mine :-)

the t3,

i personally think that the t3 takes slow shots esp with flash, even though the t3i is 3.7 fps and the t3 is 3 it still makes a massive diff, as well as the focussing on the actual camera's

You mentioned you liked the Nikon D60 - why not get what you know you like?

I find that I like the compact superzooms the best i.e. (ZS20 or SX260).

The only downside of these is the higher F Stop on the lens so you may have trouble setting up a shallow depth of field for portraits (blurry backround and sharp foreground). However, since you already have an SLR for that you shouldn't have that problem.

These cameras are amazing. At the siyum hashas I was way up on the second level and was still able to decent pictures of the speakers at 20X.

I just don't get why people spend more than $400 on a point and shoot...
