SO is getting me a camera for our anniversary. I'm no pro nor do I want to be; but I love taking photos. Any suggestions for $700ish & under for a high quality camera?

Do you want a point and shoot? Or one with interchangeable lenses?
I'm not an expert but Nikon makes great point and shoots with awesome zoom and they take great pics. Your best bet is to go somewhere and play with the cameras and see what will work for you. I just got a dsrl last year and am still learning to use it I live it but for snapping pics if the kids I still break out my Nikon cool pix l110


Eta: I went to best buy and takes with the camera guy there about features and such and messed around with the cameras for over an hour before choosing one

The cool pix l110 is under $200 and takes awesome pics. That was 3 years ago so there might be a newer model by now.

Look for one with a high optical zoom. Digital zoom sucks. Also best buy has an awesome warranty I took mine in 3 times once for the focus not working once for a scratch on the lens and once for sand in the moving part of the lens they sent it into Nikon each time and I got it back within 2 weeks.
