    Point and Shoot Digi Cam

    Its time for a new point and shoot digi camera. I have a konica right now with about 4 megapixels. Its nice and all but encountering a few problems here and there, so its time for a change.
    Im by no means any good with photography. Will just use this camera to capture the moment and snap some cool shots.
    Im in the price range of $500.

    We talking indoor or nature type shots.

    I like the Panasonic FZ series, but the long zoom will be useless indoors.

    I just bought a Canon SD-400 a few weeks ago and it just blows me away. Its a much better camera than I expected. The SD-450 is the same camera with a larger LCD...not really worth it in my oppinion.

    its 5 MP, and has a macro mode that will let you focus on something 1.5" away!

    it also has really good glass, and some of the best compression you can get.

    I've actually used the camera to shoot some headshots for my girlfriend, and they turned out great. blew up to 8x10 with no problems.

    I'm biased to the Pana FZ series then. For $500, you can't relaly beat 12X optical. It has a big lens, though, and is all-in-all a large camera, but that's because of the 12X optical lens. Anyway, there are several good options out there, I'd go to dpreview.com and stevesdigitalcamera.com. I like steves better than dpreview, mainly because the dpreview site is a pain to navigate. Post on steves and they'll give you some good help.

    The FZ series is pretty decent such as the fz30 but then you are looking into not really point and shoot anymore and more D-SLR hybrid.

    For pooint and shoot, I really like the Canon powershot series. the s and SD series are really good. The s-80 and the sd-550 are really good cameras for point and shoot.
