I'm not shutter bug. I occassionally take pictures, but when I do I'm usually after close up clear shots. Wanting to get a digital camera of a decent quality at a decent price. My ex had a KM Z6 that was 6MP and had 12x optical zoom. I don't recall how much digital zoom it had, but I'm really after the optical. So whats out there with features like this? I know that camera is a couple years old. I saw an add for a Sony Cyber-shot. It had 8MPs and 15x zoom for $479. Just looking for suggestions for cameras wit features in this range or better, and I'm wanting to stay under $500. Under $400 is even better, but I know you get what you pay for.
