Hi I am new to the digital camera world and understand nothing much about these cameras. I know that I want a camera to take good indoor pics of the kids and family, pets(etc) and outdoor shots in bright light. I like to zoom into trees to get shots of birds,and want to get shots of fast moving subjects. Is the Canon SX110 too much for a beginner? I understand it has an auto mode claiming to make shots easy for the uneducated but was wondering how true this is.
Also my husband says if I buy this camera he thinks I wont be able to zoom in only 6x and have a clear, that would be as clear if you were to use a camera that is made to only go up to 6x zoom. Is that correct? Another issue I don't understand is will I be able to make small prints of 4x6 using an SX110? I have been reading and reviewing for days and feel so overwhelmed... I close my eyes and see cameras!! lol. I would like to stick to the canon brand and not go over the 275(ish)range, and depending on the picture size, I think I would like a 10 zoom. Any suggestions on this being a good starter or too much to handle for a newbie?? I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!
