I've order a new camera.. Thanks to Amazon.com and Swagbucks.com
It's the Canon Powershot ELPH 300 HS.. I think it'll do the job.. It's overwhelming looking at all the options. Clearly my Iphone is just not doing justice.. and if I was so stupid as to wash my camera in the washing machine, well let's just say I wouldn't be in the market for a new camera.
