    Hi guys,

    I'm looking for a nice digital camera that has ATLEAST an 8x zoom on it and takes stable shots with it. I have a olympus 510z right now. it has a 3x optical zoom. My only gripe with it, when it's zoomed in all the way, if you move a nanometer while taking it, the pic will be blurry :( I am so frustrated with that...

    So, this is what i am thinking about getting: Olympus C-730 Ultra Zoom. 10x zoom and it's not much larger than my current camera. It runs between $450-600.

    Any better suggestions? I'm not worried about the size of the camera. Interchangeable lens would be nice, but that is a bit too pricey for me. I want to stay at $1,000 or less. Thanks for any suggestions! :cool:

    Get the Sony DSC-F717, you won't regret it.

    I think that is going to be the case with any camera. At a higher zoom you are going to have to keep the camera even more steady.
