I'm not a photographer by any means, but do enjoy taking good photos. I've been disappointed with the digital cameras I've used because the images seemed blurry. My current digital has 6 mp, and I know the technology has moved way beyond that, and that alone might cure the blurry problem. I had a Pentax SLR before the digital era, and would love to have a DSLR but that is way out of my budget these days. I'd like to have good quality zoom and the ability to shoot decent photos of the fireworks and shows. I've fallen in love with a Nikon L110, but I think that's more about looks. This forum comes rated highly and I know you can give me some excellent suggestions!
