I am planning on buying a digital camera.
As far as I am concerned, quality is more important than price, although less than $1000 would be nice.
Basically, I would like to be able to take large pictures at high resolution, and also have a good range of optical zoom.
These are the two most important features for me, but possibility of large capacity would also be an advantage, thus a microdrive may be better than memory sticks.
Any advice as to which make/model would give me the best balance between these requirements?
