Hi everyone, I have just joined this forum as I have taken an interest in photography. I would like to start a new thread by asking a question about a specific camera. I have asked Santa for a camera for Christmas and even though I have read many good reviews about the camera I would like to hear from you guys what you think would be the ultimate decision for me to go ahead with the gift or not. i have asked for a bridge camera kodak AZ521, I am really keen for the fact that it has a 52X zoom so that I can take pictures of London and in particular close ups and scenery where London has many to offer. I would also like to take portrait pictures. The downside is that it can get a little bit noisy in dark light, but I would love to take pictures of London, by night. So not too sure there. The budget is roughly the same as the Kodak (£150). Should I get this camera or is there another camera out there that can outdo the Kodak and have the same price tag ? thank you very much.
