Need a new camera
I'm looking to buy a camera in the $250-450 price range. I am not looking for a universal camera that takes videos and does this and that and all this. If it takes videos then cool, but I want something that takes good/great quality photos up close-medium range (mostly close).
I can go higher than 450, but that is my starting range. I'm not doing it professionally or anything like that, it's just for personal use, but I am seriously sick and tired of the horrible camera's that are on my phone/ipad/ipod, etc.
Can some of you Camera/photography guys give me some links of some of the best camera's I can get in this price range (focusing on pictures not video or anything else) and even ones that might be more expensive but not overly so (not going to pay a thousand plus or anything like that).
