I had recently bought a Nikon CoolPix L110, which was stolen a few months later. In searching for a replacement, I'd like to get something that takes better pictures in poor lighting. The zoom on the L110 seemed to be overdone, as zooming would reduce the quality of the images. I don't know much about photography, so could you tell me:
- what settings/properties of a camera affect how it takes pictures in poor lighting (avoiding blurriness and not too grainy)
- what kind of price range am I looking at?
I think I let myself be sold on the L110 for its zoom (my previous camera only had 3x zoom), and then was constantly disappointed with the blurry indoor pictures.
