Unless you are willing to pony up more money then all the photos indoors will either be grainy, blurry, both, or harsh flash would make the photo look unappealing. We would all love a pocket camera with a good focal range and works well indoors for under $250, but that time has not come.
The best out there right now appears to be the Fuji F200EXR, but that's past your budget by at least $110 online.
Right now I have a Casio EX-Z77, good camera for snap shooters but not good enough for me. The pictures are grainy, and that's not attractive at all. I want something newer and better quality especially if later on in life I want to persue photography as a career path. I had the Nikon Coolpix L12 and I loved it. I have a budget of course and don't want to spend over 250, I would prefer an 8mp and up camera so I can resize and such for prints and whatever else. I need fairly good zoom quality and also good the camera needs to be able to take pictures in low light and still come out good and not red or blurry. I take a lot of macro images so the camera needs to focus well in close ranges as well as far. I don't exactly want to get an SLR so just compacts for me and also it must be SD compatible, I don't want to have to switch over to a memory stick. So any one out there have any suggestions for a high quality budget price digital camera?
Some I was considering; but im a little weary about the prices
