Hello! I am thinking of buying my husband a camera for Christmas. We already have a Sony Cybershot 6MP 3X zoom camera that is about 6 mths old. We bought that camera for its great battery life right before a vacation. We previously had an older, larger Olympus that ate batteries like candy. We also recently received a sony digital camcorder as a gift -- haven't even opened the box much less the instruction booklet on that one yet (intend to use that for baby). Anyhoo, here's why I'm thinking of another camera ... shutter speed and zoom. We just took a river cruise in Europe and while our Cybershot pics came out good overall, some were blurry because of the long processing time for low light shots w/o flash, we couldn't get a good zoom on castles we were passing on the river, and some moments pass by too quickly to catch on a Cybershot. I still love the camera for its compact size and simplicity b/c we're both total novices w/ a camera. So here's what I'm looking for ... fast shutter speed, stronger zoom (not looking to snap a wart on a toad a mile away -- just reasonably good), not too complicated, as compact as possible, good battery life, and as inexpensive as possible since this will be our third camera (not counting the Olympus that's in the closet). We will use the camera for two predominant purposes -- 1) travel (I'm a travel agent) and 2) baby photos (we're expecting a child through adoption) -- candid action shots, not portraits. Basically, we'd like a good idiot-proof camera just like the Cybershot but with faster shutter speed and more powerful zoom. We're not looking to become pro photographers. This may be asking too much but if Sony makes such a thing, even better b/c we have a Sony TV with a media slot. After a trip, we can pop our memory card into the slot and watch our slide show immediately on our TV -- love that. Suggestions? Thanks!
