Your 6mp camera is an excellent one but do you really want to have 10x12 inch prints? That's what a 6mp will give you.
If you intend to have your photos postcard size, let;'s say 4x6 or even wallet size, you do NOT need a 6 mp camera, 3mp will do nicely and is much less expensive.
However, make sure you get at least 3 optical zoom anmd, if you intend taking closeups of flowers or jewellery then nake sure the camera has a MACRO lens option.
Forgive me for being personal but I like a camera that has a "self-included feature. The reason is has a previous camera and went to Europe with my wife and friends and took 300 pictures, NONE of them including me! My family was disappointed and kept saying, " where are you in the picture?"
So the next one I got allowed me to set-up the camera and then nip around and BE IN the pictures. AS very nice feature/
