Right now i only have a olympus fe-280 camera. Had it for the past 3 years.
Im interested in a new point and shoot camera. But I dont know where to start off at and which brand is good or not. Plus what different features are good to have. Im trying to get more into takin pictures at the local car shows, meets, drag races, people and cons i go to. Plus not looking to spend over $550.

Go to the local book store and buy the book Understanding Exposure. Read it and that will answer a lot of the questions you have and will help you with photography in general.

i know people with the lumix P&S and the G series P&S and both love them. actually the guy with the lumix does studio and portrait work as a side business with it, so it cant be all that bad.

your not going to get professional results from a non professional camera that you dont know about. ive seen some people get just awesome pictures from point n shoots, but they also know exactly how to set them up to do so.
