Need help buying a camera

Posted by yesican (My Page) on

The more I look, the more confused I get. I'm presently using a little Kodak EasyShare C530 but I'm very unhappy with my photos. I want to be able to take good close ups plus zoom for wild life. Under $400. I need something very easy to operate. Is there a camera for me? Maybe a Canon?

Here are some examples from the S2IS...super macro and 12x zoom [my wife took these]
