    Get one with both optical and digital zoom. And try to go for 2.8 megaPixel and up.

    Definitely get optical zoom. A digital zoom is worthless; Photoshop will do a better job at zooming it.

    I wouldn't get a Polaroid; they're not exactly known for their digital cameras.

    Optical is soooo more important than digital, for sure.

    How much optical zoom do you think is good?

    I have a (IIRC because I usually just get close to the subject) 2X on my 2.1MP camera. It's not enough for things such as stadium events and such where you'd probably need 10X or so. If I were you I'd save up ridiculously and get a good SLR, possibly off eBay.

    Single reflex lens, IIRC. It produces high-quality pictures, among other things.

    As they said, digital zoom is worthless, it's made up imaginary zoom. That's it... I'd save up a little bit more and get at least a 3MP one with 3x zoom. That'll do you okay. Poloroid is notknown for their cameras at all. Nikon, Kodak, Olympus amoung others are top digital brands.
