Default Need Help!! I am LOST, please just tell me which camera.

:roll:
I need help finding the right camera for myself.. I have a sony DSC-P71 but I would like a camera that is more versatile. I am interested in one that can take close up portrait type photos, and one that can take good photos from far away, which I guess would be the optical zoom ?I don't know where to begin, up until today I was going by the MP only.

You didn't mention your price range or what types of features you are looking for in "versatility".
I just bought a Minolta DiMAGE A1. 7X optical zoom with Anti-Shake really helps to get great pictures in the Auto Modes - and the camera has plenty of manual setting abilities for versatility.

The ultrazoom cameras that I have used and produce very good pictures are the following:

Olympus C740, 10X Optical Zoom, 3.2mp
Olympus C750, 10X Optical Zoom, 4 mp
Fuji S5000, 10X optical Zoom, 3.2 mp
Kodak 6490, 10X opical Zoom, 4mp

Disregard any description of digital zoom.
