In that price range, I would start looking at:
Those are excellent cameras with 4X zoom.
If you are wanting more zoom:
Canon S2 IS
Both have 12X Zoom with image stabilization.
For low light shooting (with flash), the Large zoom cameras will have the stronger flash (covers larger area).
For low light shooting (without flash), any of the cameras will work.
But....you will have to use the manual controls to get good results with that type of situation.
since im going to buy my first digital camera i thought its better i get some help ...it seems you are all professionals here:)
so here is what i need:
high resolution ,since i want to use the photos in graphic designs i need very clean close-ups ,and a very strong zoom.
and one of the most important things i need is a very clean and real colors for pix taken at night or low lights.
i think thats it...
i'd appreciate if you could help me
