Budget * What budget have you allocated for buying this camera? Please be as specific as possible. I am willing to pay $500-800 Size * What size camera are you looking for? Or does size not matter at all to you? Size does not matter to me Features How many megapixels will suffice for you? I read recently that megapixels don't necessarily matter so I'm a little confused now. I'm just looking for a great quality photo in nearly any size print, even a poster size. * What optical zoom will you need? (None, Standard = 3x-4x, Ultrazoom = 10x-12x) I don't need to zoom, or if I needed to I'd like to be able to buy an attachable lens to do so but it's really not a concern. * How important is “image quality” to you? (Rate using a scale of 1-10) 9 Do you care for manual exposure modes (shutter priority, aperture priority, manual)? I'm not sure what that means but one of the other most important features I will need when choosing a camera will be a really fast shutter speed. My son is 14 months old and he moves so quickly its almost impossible to catch him standing still for more then 5 seconds. General Usage * What will you generally use the camera for? Family photos, baby photos, sport/outdoor activity photos, inddor photos as well. * Will you be making big prints of your photos or not? Yes Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos or low light photos? Yes Will you be shooting sports and/or action photos? Yes Miscellaneous Are there particular brands you like or hate? Neither Are there particular models you already have in mind? No (If applicable) Do you need any of the following special features? (Wide Angle, Image Stabilization, Weatherproof, Hotshoe, Rotating LCD) I am a little bit shaky, Im not sure if that means I need image stabilization or not. Thank you so much to anyone that can help me find what I am looking for! I appreciate it more than you know.
