I use a Canon PowerShot A2000.
I like to use the setting that I am able to control the camera speed and exposure.
Goes all the way up to 3200 ISO
Exposure can be as long as 15 seconds
I also read a book on how to take camera shots such as using the flash in daylight so don't get a dark face and a bright background.
I was able to photo hummingbirds with this camera and have a hub with a bunch of pictures from Coronado National Park but these pictures are in no way as good as the really expensive cameras that have pictures published in books.
