The top runners for superzooms(for your price range) appear to be:
Unfortunately, there is not a point and shoot that can shoot in all settings with high quality results. Point and shoots need a decent amount of light. You could go with one that has a hot shoe so you can add an external flash, but that would increase the budget quite a bit. You wouldn't have to get it now, but you could save for the flash later.
I am trying to find a digital camera that can take quality images of my daughter in all settings and also quality images of wildlife in their habitat.price no more than $450 but good quality. I need a good zoom as wildlife is not always close.I had a nikon coolpix but it is sluggish between pix. Any suggestions i appreciate as i need this camera quickly i am missing photos of my daughter as we speak. I will take either compact or dslr which ever is the best for my needs.Thanks
