So my Panasonic Lumix DMC LX7 broke after 2+ years of great use. You can see it here:

I really liked the HD video, super slow motion video, and just overall quality of this camera. I've been a big fan of the Panasonic Lumix series over the years but I can be easily swayed towards Canon, Nikon, you name it.

Can anyone suggest a good $200 and under camera (does not need to be the newest/latest model with all of the bells & whistles - I do not need WIFI uploading) that would motivate me to start looking for a Christmas present for myself?

Anything in this model range will do a great job. Here is an example you can only get used:

My only caveat with this type of camera is that some of them do not have a sensor cleaning mechanism and manual cleaning is a near impossible task. Check out the newer ones to see what they can do. Also, the lens focus mechanism is prone to get dirty and will fail with heavy use. I keep a Sony Cybershot on my hip belt for quick draw use. It only cost me 85.00 but it is super slow. It gets the job done but I'm going back to the Lumix ZS series as soon as I'm able.
