Default New camera help...

I'm quite new to digital camera's. I need a recommendation, please.

I'm going to Disney. I need a camera takes a nice picture with distance, Good picture in the evening, when you hit the button to take the picture it doesn't take like 10 seconds to take the next one. I'm sure there's a word for that. but I don't what its called. Good HD video.

i'm looking around 400 dollars or less.

I checked a few. i'm not sure if these would do it.

Canon Powershot SX 530HS- http://www.steves-digicams.com/camer...ews-337.html#b

Nikon Coolpix L840- http://www.steves-digicams.com/camer...-review.html#b

Thanks,

Mike

As I allready told you on Dpreview the Nikon P610 is a good superzoom. Another good one is the Canon SX60HS, but I don't think you will find this one at less than $400.

The Nikon P600 is also a good camera. It is the same as the P610. But doesn't have gps or time lapse. Plus, you can get them refurbished from Nikon for aound 220.00 I've had my P600 for about a month and find it takes great pictures.

ok here is a little bit more information, now that i'm not at work

Something pocketable would be great, but I am willing to go a little larger if needed

Something that shoots 1080p/60 video is preferred because I will be shooting a lot of video

At least a 4x optical zoom, obviously more would be better

Something that might work well for evening photos in the parks. Probably will be shooting video of the night parades, fireworks, etc. Brighter lens =better.

It would be nice to have wifi to be able to transfer some photos from the camera to my phone

For that, you're going to need a large aperture lens. The Panasonic FZ200 has a long Leica stabilized zoom lens with a constant f/2.8 aperture, for less that $400.

Despite being released in 2012, the FZ200 is still a very good camera, that I like very much. It has a shorter reach as the Nikon P600/P610, but that never bothered me.
