I'm looking at cameras too.
I've decided resolution is the most important thing I want. Over all other variables. I'd like to stay under $350, but if you have experience with any cameras near or over that mark, I'd like to hear about them.
Zoom is very nice, but secondary to everything else. This isn't going to be a "primary" camera; have an advavantix for that. But I want to be able to shoot stuff, and only use up some time and a cdr/rechargable-battery.
I read about "iso" in the past (whatever the acronym; how close you can get to an object). And "shudder speed". I'm just starting to scour the net for information, so anything anyone knows would be good. I'd like to be able to take action pictures close to what iso 400 can do. And taking "movies" or rapid-shots would be nice too, so I can capture a sequence.
Low light ability is nice, but from knowing a bit about military IR pods, I know I'll pay out the whazoo for more sensitive CCD's. Any experience with good low-light cameras I'd like to hear about.
