I'm thinking about a digital camera upgrade. Perhaps you folks can tell me where to look.
o at least 6x zoom (what I've seen is 4x, then jumps to 10x, so maybe at least 10x)
o at least 5mp
o macro capability (preferably not by lens attachment
o additional telephoto (lens attachment ok)
o AA batteries
o SD memory card would be nice, since I could switch between my two cameras
o nice to have ability to add filters on lens
o optical viewfinder
o SLR would be great, but that's bucks.
o Aperture, shutter, programmable control of exposure
o Over/Underexpose by stops easily
o minimum of having to step down through lcd menus to get things done
o prefer manual controls for exposure control.
o low noise
And, $400 or less, preferably $300 or less. If that price can't be met, tell me anyway.
