I have decided to buy a digital compact camera but with so many in the market, I need your suggestions given my photographic needs.
1) It must have between 7 to 10 megapixels.
2) At least 5x optical zoom preferably 10x.
3) An option for Shutter or Manual modes.
4) ISO 1600 at least.
I guess these are what I want in a camera. Design wise, I rather like the Nikon Coolpix range - the ones with handle grip. But that is secondary.
