    Anyone buy or get an ultrazoom camera lately?

    I am looking for a new camera for my wife for her birthday and I was looking at one of the Ultrazooms. Just looking for some input. I have looked hard at the canon's and the sony's, but would just like any input. She has a Sony A100, but doesn't like hauling it around to family activities.

    Re: Anyone buy or get an ultrazoom camera lately?

    I've got a Sony Cybershot DSC-HX100V and i love it. It's not small but its 30x zoom and takes pretty nice pictures in lower light. I film and take pictures in alot of dark gyms.

    This camera records great HD video which i use as much as the picture taking since my video camera bought it.

    Do some research on it. I know a gal who just got one and is addicted to it. I'm still on a learning curve.

    This is probably bigger than your wife is looking for...that came out wrong. :) I'm not sure what the term ultrazoom means in this case.
