If you want to buy a camera, or, for that matter, anything else of value,
you must do some preliminary work yourself and not rely on someone else.
Someone else will tell you what they like based on their basic
requirements and those may (or may not) be the same as yours.
Decide, as an example, what weight of camera would be best for you. How
can you do that? Why go to the store and feel several cameras.
What size lens, what resolutions, what zoom, what minimum or maximum
size (do you want it to fit your pocket----if so what size pocket), will
the zoom be internal or external, does it come with a rechargeable
battery, does it come with a battery charger, what size is the disc, both
in physical size and capacity, what is the maximum you want to spend? I
can go on and on. But that is the homework YOU should do. It took me a
week of research before I knew what I wanted. I am certainly not saying
that you should commit to all that time, but at least be aware of some
major options. Your decision will then become so much more obvious.
All said in a kind way and I wish you luck. Paul
