Well, it's time for another one of those annoying camera suggestion questions.
I'm looking for suggestions for a new camera to take on bike trips. I currently have a Sony WSC 120 (4X zoom, 7.2 MP, 1080 HD). It took great pics till I dropped it one time too many so now I'm looking to replace it.
I think I would like something with more zoom, say at least 10X. I would consider more but my research seems to indicate that the 20X and 24X cameras have issues with picture quality at higher zooms.
I'm clumsy so image stabilization would help me take better pics (fewer blurry pics?).
Something with at least 7 mp so they can be enlarged. 1080HD would be nice.
Obviously, as small as possible, for space considerations and as rugged as possible (note fate of last camera). It needs to be easy to use because I'm not too smart either.
I would prefer to keep the cost under $350.
Please feel free to correct any misconceptions I may have regarding any of the above requirements and I look forward to your recommendations.
