Great little camera for my needs--would be better with higher zoom

A few months ago, I decided that since I regularly take digital pictures and upload them to my Flickr site (www.Flickr.com), it was about time to upgrade to a better camera.  The economy being what it was, I decided that I didn't want to blow a HUGE wad o' cash--just enough to get a good quality camera that had higher megapixels than what I already had (a Casio QV-R40 with 4.0 megapixels).

A Flickr friend had just bought herself a Sony Cybershot and liked it a lot, so I set about doing some research.  As it turned out, Amazon.com had this particular Cybershot model on sale at the time I was looking, so I got a great deal as well as a great camera.

The Sony Cybershot S750 features 7.2 megapixels, a 2.5" LCD monitor, ISO 1250 (high sensitivity) and a 3X optical zoom.  In hindsight, I wish I had gone up a notch to a higher zoom but, all in all, I have been very happy with the camera.  It was tremendously easy to learn to use.  I am not a big fan of "reading the blanking manual," so having something that is easy to use right out of the box was a bonus.

It has a very quick & easy wheel that allows you to switch between different types of shots quickly.  The options are the standard auto adjustment setting for photos, a program auto setting (which I haven't tried yet), a movie setting, a snow setting for taking pictures in a bright white landscape, a waterside setting for beach and other water shots, a twilight setting for shooting in low light w/o flash, a twilight portait setting, a landscape setting, a soft background setting and a blur-reducing low-light setting.

The battery supposedly would allow you to take about 280 shots on one battery charge, which is pretty darned great compared to my older camera.  However, it won't take much without an additional memory card (for an additional cost, of course).  I got the Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo with 8gb of memory and that has worked very well.

What did you think of this review?

Ooooh, hello flickr user!  If you're looking for a camera with higher zoom, you should check out Canon.  I own the older SD750 and love it, and @taniagail actually wrote a review on the newer SD780, and it sounds wonderful.  Both have digital zoom.  I actually got the latter camera for my technologically-inept parents and they picked it up very quickly, plus its got all those neat settings and Image Stabilization :)
