Digital Camera Recommendations?

  1. I currently have an HP 1.3 (?) which has been an excellent starter digital camera. I am beggining to lust after something with better pixel clarity and an optical zoom.

    I think a megapixel 2.1 or higher would be the minimum. I would benefit from a zoom and prefer a camera that is automatic focus with 35 mm camera "feel".

    Anyone have any experience in this? Recommendations? Any discussion on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

    Hope you all had a MERRY day!

    2x/2.5x digital zoom
    focal length equiv(35mm) 30-70mm

    Kodak DX3500
    2.1 megapixel
    wt 8.9oz
    3x digital zoom
    focal length equiv 38mm

    Nikon Coolpix 775
    digital zoom 3x/2.5x
    focal length equiv 38-115mm

    Epson PhotoPC 3100Z
    wt 13.2oz
    digital zoom 3x/2x
    focal length equiv 34-102mm

    Fuji FinePix 6800 Zoom
    wt 9.6oz
    digital zoom 3x/4.4x
