I have a little Panasonic digital with 8x zoom, but looking for something with higher zoom, keeping in mind the weight and bulk to carry around. Going by some of the photo's some of you show, there are some very good camera's (and photographers!) out there, but I don't want to spend much more than £250.
So, any advice would be appreciated, and also hints re 'best light', given the sometimes strong sunlight and beige/sand colour which predominates. Thank you
