This will be my first digital camera. Will be using it to shoot photos of my first child I dont know much about the better brands, models and stuff, but i do know a few things of what I am looking for.
Size: 1 inch or less thickness.(doesnt really need to be TOO compact)
MP: 8+ MP (7 MP debatable)
Price: Between $80 - $270 (or so)
Zoom: 4x +
Image Stablization: Yes (if possible within my budget & needs)
Also...SUPERIOR Near Professional Image quality with Automatic settings both indoors and outdoors, slightly more indoors. I know its impossible, but the best pics I can get with automatic settings would be great. Bright, vivid, crisp, sharp photos. I hate blur and noise
(Optional) Needs to be somewhat fast...baby moments are quick.
