Forget about the digital zoom. What type of pictures are you going to shoot? How much control do you want over the camera? Where will the majority of shooting occur - indoors or outdoors?

Yes it does matter if it is indoors or outside. You want to look for a camera that has an F rating between 2 and 3, or lower, for lens speed and the ability to use up to ISO of 400. The higher the ISO number the more you will encounter noise so the camera should have noise reduction also. I would look at Olympus, Nikon, Fuji and Canon cameras.
