Im looking to buy a new camera and i have no idea where to start. Far too much choice!! My last camera was a normal digital camera with 4MP and 3xOptical Zoom. I want to go for a better one now as my other half has a similar camera to my old one to use for nights out and needing something small etc. Just want to get some opinions on the real difference between some different types for someone who is not an expert but is interested in photography. Ok so: Option 1 - Standard digital (now can get around 7MP and 3x Optical zoom which is pretty compact, e.g sony cybershot type thing) Option 2 - Standard Digital but more hefty ones with better Optical Zooms around 10x e.g. Konica Minolta Z5 type thing Option 3 - Digital SLR (dont know too much about the differences here except the adjustable lens giving nice shots) What is the real differences with these camers? Thanks All!!
