hi guys, i've searched through the recent threads but none of it really makes any sense to me at all. my boyfriend really wants a camera for his birthday, but I haven't got a clue what to get. he used his dad's fuji lately and really liked that, i think he mentioned 30 fps and i think it was 7mp i can remember what optical zoom it was but i think he was hoping for a 5x one. he wants it for photos and short videos. i have no idea what makes are good, i also heard somewhere that its not really the mp or the x optical zoom but the quality of the lens that makes the difference, and that really threw me. he's really particular about this stuff and i soooo want it to be right, i would be heart broken if he didn't like it. please help.
