Camera Help

I lost my digital camera so I'm in the market for a new one. I have a 7 month old daughter so I want something that doesn't have a very long picture delay & a pretty good zoom. I know nothing about camera's so I am asking for some advice. I would like to spend about $150 - $250. Maybe more to get a decent camera.

Digital Camera

In reply to: Camera Help

If you are looking for a thin camera, check out the Sony W35 or W55.
The only difference is the size of the LCD.
Optical zoom is 3X.

A slightly thicker camera would be the Canon A550 or A560.
The only difference is the size of the LCD.
Optical zoom is 4X.

All of them have a viewfinder and a LCD display.
The viewfinder is helpful on a bright sunny day, when the sun glares off the LCD.

Here is a side-by-side look at the specifications:
