I'm still looking at cameras based largely on what you folks have said. Choosing what camera type is hazy: I'm thinking either DSLR or bridge? But from my reading, bridge cameras don't allow interchangeable lenses while DSLRs do. Then again, other than an occasional fishbowl effect or what have you, maybe I wouldn't need too many lenses if I had a strong enough zoom to begin with?

So far I'm eying a Canon G6 and Panasonic Lumix G1 as noted by Kathleen. It looks like I can get the Canon pretty cheap while the latter is considerably newer and more expensive, which I'm fine with. I'm also comfortable with refurbished models.

Kathleen mentioned getting large sensors, which would mean a high megapixel rate. But what would that be, 12mp and up? I'm also keeping an eye out for tilt and swivel LCD panels, good optical zoom, and shutter lag as mentioned by other forum members.

Is it possible to have a camera that, without a long shutter lag, takes acceptable photos under dark/dim lighting that won't cause blur? There could be situations were I'd want to be low key and not use flash.
