$300-400

Size

A medium size camera is fine, nothing too small or large, but this is not a really big factor for me.

Features

6.0

ultrazoom

i would like the images to be good quality but they don't have to be too high quality, they are going to printed out for family use.

Do you care for manual controls?

no

General Usage

mostly for outdoor scenery and indoor family shots. going to ireland in a few months and will use it there.

some are possible (8x10) but most of the time not.

Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos or low light photos?

indoor photos at holiday times, light should be fine for those.

Will you be shooting sports and/or action photos?

no

Miscellaneous

Are there particular brands you like or hate?

I like the Nikons, Canons and Fuji.

Are there particular models you already have in mind?

Canon PowerShot S3 is one that looks good. Other suggestions are totally desired though.

(If applicable) Do you need any of the following special features? (Wide Angle, Image Stabilization, Weatherproof, Hotshoe, Rotating LCD)

no, they would be nice, but not needed.
