OT: Camera recommendations wanted (SuperZoom digital)
I want to get a super zoom camera, leaning towards Canon but hear Nikon is good too. I want a point and shoot with super zoom and there are just too many to choose from and customer reviews are tough to guage seeing as how they offer minimal information regarding the types of photos they take. I'm wanting to get something that I can take close up shots of my son for blowing up and framing, also family pictures and such. I am also wondering if these cameras have the "rapid shutter" feature so I can take action shots and let it capture every move without having to repeatedly depress the button. (Can you tell I'm no photographer with my lack of terminology there LOL). I'm not looking to spend much more than maybe $230 on the camera.
Also, noticed a couple have wi-fi and/or touch screens. Could anyone tell me how those work for you? I'm not a smart phone person so I'm not into touch screens and wonder if that would be a bit more complicated for point and shoot / candid use.
Thank you so much for any information/recommendations.
ETA: I'm leaning towards the Canon PowerShot SX500 IS
