I'm buying a compact digital camera in Jan, but have little idea about them. I got a basic spec. from one of my friends which goes something like: 6MP - 12X optical zoom - image stabilizer - .35 or less shutter speed - 2MB SD card compatable - zoom works when using it as a camcorder.
I don't want a DSLR, just a good quality compact with a good range optical zoom.
Anyone got any recommendations for cameras around this spec. or can you suggest additions to the criteria I should be looking out for.
Any general advice on digital cameras would also be appreciated.
