Photography Question 
John Suess

new camera purchase

My daughter wishes a new camera for Christmas. Her present one is a Sony p150 I think (about 4-5 years old) which is a 3.2 pixel with a 3x zoom. She wants one smaller but with bigger zoom. As we went shopping we discovered that there were virtually none in a compact or smaller size. Can anyone recommend onethat has the following:
5+ pixels; 4x zoom optical or better; view finder - in the most compact footprint.
thank you.

  Are you sticking with Sony? (all your memory sticks will fit)..If so, go to and they have all the specs there for all their cameras. I suppose all the other manufacturers do also.

  Try the Nikon Coolpix 5000 series cameras. You may not get quite 4x zoom but it should have about 5.1 megs and at least 3x zoom and is very compact.
