Budget Maximum 200 £ but i would prefer something around 150 or so. Size Size does not really matter as much, but would have to be a decent size to it wouldn't be too much of a bother carrying it around. Features How many megapixels will suffice for you? ---- around 14-15 mp would be fine. * What optical zoom will you need? ---- something around 25x/30x * How important is “image quality” to you? ---- I would say around 8. Do you care for manual exposure modes (shutter priority, aperture priority, manual)? ---- Yes. General Usage * What will you generally use the camera for? ---- Landscape pictures, cities, moving objects. * Will you be making big prints of your photos or not? --- No. Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos or low light photos? ---- Maybe. Will you be shooting sports and/or action photos? --- Yes. Miscellaneous Are there particular brands you like or hate? ---- Don't really care for Sony as much, but am open to a Sony cam if better/cheaper. Are there particular models you already have in mind? First one is the Fujifilm FinePix s4500 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0082B35W4/ref=noref?ie=UTF8&psc=1&s=photo) I have been looking at it for some time now and i have a friend who has one and says he is pleased with it. But i noticed that they are available in 3 colors red/white/black and when looking at the different colors i noticed the prices are lower especially for the red one, and it shows the same specs, so i was wondering if anybody knows of any difference other than the color, because if not i really don't think i would mind a red one... And the second camera i was looking at Fujifilm FinePix s4800 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fujifilm-Fi...&qid=1383143899&sr=8-1&keywords=finepix+s4800) this one has 16MP and is practically the same price but i have not seem many reviews on it so it kinda puts me off a bit. Hope somebody can help me with this. Much appreciated.
