I need to buy one by the 5th Oct. I know nothing about cameras so I want your recommendation. What I require is something for about $400-$450. I would like to have manual options for the settings. I'd obviously like good pic quality with the ability for video (and zooming within video) I want it to have a rechargeable battery. It has to be quite compact. Preferably with aperture speed adjustment. Stabiliser stuff. Basically just the dog's ******** for that price range. Find me one please!
