Okay, I am going out thursday or friday to buy a new camera. I would really like your input. I am pretty good with cameras so I wouldn't call myself a novice BUT I am also in no way an expert! I would like a camera that takes excellent pictures without having to manually zoom everytime. I dont mind doing it for still shots but if I need a quick picture of something I do not want to be fiddling with the lens either. I would like something more than just an "average" digital. I have a nice digital now but it's a small one and doesnt zoom much. Any feedback would be excellent, maybe even some examples of pictures taken with your camera??!! Thanks in advance for your time and I am so excited to see everyone's opinion!!!!
