Pretty advanced for your uses......

That is more of a dSLR alternative. For what you said you would use it for, you could get a lower priced camera with the features you need. It is a good camera for an amateur-professional, but I wouldn't recommend it if it is your first camera. But overall a nice camera.

Sony H2

So far, there are no reviews on the H2, and there may not be any because it is not that different from the H1. Mainly they added one mega-pixel for the H2.

There is also an H5 which adds still one more mega-pixel.

The "H" series has been popular and would be a good choice. I just checked some sample photos from the H1 and it has a very sharp lens. You will like the picture quality.

Here is a link that compares the specifications of the "H" series of cameras:

Notice the red stars in each column. That is how owners of the camera rates the camera.
You can read "owner's opinions" by clicking the link right under the red stars.

There is also a review of the on the Green link right under the photo of the H1.
