Haven't used a camera in about 10 years other than an old very basic Kodak digital. We just moved to the beach and I'd like to take some photos of the beach, sunrise/sunset, the night sky etc. Maybe I'm researching in the wrong places, but the blogs of reviews I see are either way over my head, or just seem to be ad based sites where every camera gets 4 stars. I have a price range of about $300-$350, and would like a decent zoom so I can take some pictures from our terrace which has an ocean view but not so much that camera shake becomes a major issue. Can anyone recommend a camera that might fit my needs and be good for a virtual newbie?
