I'm hunting for my first digital camera.
My problem is this... I would like to be able to have some decent zoom on the camera as I would like to take some scenery shots. I'm also interested in learning how to actually use the darn thing and would like at least some manual control. I am on a very limited budget however...
So is there such an animal? I've been looking at the Fuji S3000, Canon C-725 and the Minolta Z1 just because of their zoom factor but perhaps I'm putting too much stock into this feature.
Thanks for any help!
