You can start by looking at the new Nikon 5900.
It sells for about $260.
5 megapixels and 3X optical zoom.
Good video capabilities
Please help me choose a camera, I have no clue!
This is exclusively for taking pics of our baby and the requirements are:
1. Good resolution (does not have to be great..we do mostly 4x6 only)
2. Fast shutter speed(?) Our old digital camera takes forever to take the snap once we press the button - very inconvenient for a fast moving infant
3. Good quality video clips (with audio). We dont use a camcorder, and want to compile short clips of the baby. So this is important
4. Reasonably priced. Under $300 preferably.
I'd appreciate any suggestions.
