    Digital Camera HELP

    I'm looking for a new digital camera. My maximum price is around $250.00, which I know will get me a solid product.

    The thing is, I have no clue what to look for. I know megapixels is important, but is there a huge difference between 10 and 12 MP?

    I'd also like something that can take decent videos.

    Anybody have any ideas? Anybody have anything that they really like?

    Re: Digital Camera HELP

    Both are pretty close brands, the optical zoom is important if you need to take any distance shots. Panasonic Lumix is recommended with 8X zoom, the Canon elph's take good pics for the size.

    I don't know how to tell the difference on video, our digital slr supposedly takes hd video but it still doesn't come out very good.

    Best advice from me is to take a look at canon and nikon's lineups and find something that matches what you're willing to spend.
