I have been tasked by my dad with finding a digital camera as my own present. I have a $500 limit, though would love to find something awesome below that to save him money. The problem is, I don't know sh*t about digital cameras other than big numbers are good. I'm pretty good at snapping photos but I know next to nothing about the technical specs. I'm also looking for great video capability and, if it comes to it, I would choose video capability over still-photo capability. Is there anyone out there that can (and is willing to) help me??
