I am looking for a compact digicam with the following capabilities and I hope you guys can help recommend me one:
1) About 6-8 mega pixels (do not need more)
2) About 4-6X (or more) optical zoom, starting at 28mm preferrably.
3) High ISO capability like the Finepix F30
4) Some image-stabilizing capability like Canon IS (other than bumping up the ISO)
5) Face-recognition technology
6) Swivelling LCD if possible
7) Hot shoe for ext flash if possible
8) Quick startup and shutter response time
Anyone has any recommendations?
