the old one was a sony dsc-s600 which I found quite a few flaws with. it was a little slow. the pictures didn't come out all that great and the limited zoom didn't make me too happy but hey it was cheap and made her happy. this time around though we are trying to find something a bit better for hopefully under 200 bucks +/- a little maybe depending. we are hoping for something with atleast 8-10x zoom and at least 7MP. with a baby on the way being able to get movies out of the thing would be a HUGE plus also.
so far the ones I have been looking at but still undecided on are the Canon PowerShot SX100 IS or the Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS. both right around 200 bucks. do you guys have any opinions on these products are of ones that might be better while still keeping a good price? please help... please.
