I will be going to Asia for the next year, and need to purchase a new digital camera. I was wondering what are some good cameras? I was hoping to get a decent zoom, and at least 4-5 megapixels. Also, my price range is around $500 or less, would SLR good a good portable option or no? Also, it needs to be somewhat portable, I don't want to have to carry around any lenses, or flash stuff with it, decent durability would be nice as well. Any help would be really appreciated as I am a large digital camera newb, thanks.
