I'm new to these pages so please accept my apologies if this has been previously asked!

I'm looking for a new compact camera with decent zoom, which will give me gorgeous, detailled pictures of my little boy and his soon to arrive sibling. I'd love to be able to take close up images that blow up onto wall sized canvas well.

We currently have a Canon Ixus 70 (5 years old) and i've noticed that when developing images they seem rather soft and not very well defined.

I'm looking at around the 200ish mark and for a camera which offers excellent "point n click" for an average Joe like myself!!

Any help/advice would be great! Thanks x
