I am looking to purchase a reasonably priced digital camera with a 10x or 12x optical zoom. At least, that is what I think I want. We are leaving for Costa Rica next week and would like a digital camera that will capture the best wildlife photographs with a zoom lens. We currently have a Nikon Coolpix 3100 with a 3X optical lens. We like the camera overall - easy to use - but thought that a higher zoom might be better for wildlife like birds, monkeys in trees, etc. Any recommendations?
