So first of all I am new to using the Mac Products. I just bought my first MacBook Pro in May of this year. I also purchased Aperture. I am taking my mother on a cruise in about two weeks and I wanted to get some good pictures and create one of those hardback photobooks for her. So my question is what is a solid digital camera for under $200. I would like for it to have the built in GPS. So far here is the one I have been looking at. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V 10.2MP CMOS 10x Wide Angle Zoom Digital Camera with Optical Steady Shot Image Stabilization and 3.0 inch LCD: Camera & Photo

Any thoughts? Thanks

Digital Photography Review gives it a good review, particularly for travel. They have a group test of compact super zoom cameras on their website.

Here's the review of the Sony model you're interested in:

DP Review: Sony DSC-HX5

You can read the other parts of the group test (along with the other cameras reviewed) by pulling down the small numbered drop-down menu near the top of the screen near the words "group test".

Have fun!
