So I recntly found photography and really want to learn more about it. I took a trip to Europe this summer with an old Nikon Coolpix 2.1mp camera which was OK for little snapshots here and there, but I really felt limited with the camera. I am looking for a camera that is about $250 and under. I want to be able to have manual controls to take artistic pics etc and I want a high zoom. I was looking at the Fujifilm s5200 or the s700. Maybe an Olympus 500-UZ or something alike. I can always pick up a used or discontinued camera on ebay too. Thanks!
