My wife wants a small sized camera with high (quality) zoom. She has her sights set on a J1. We know nothing about cameras, and I'm very reluctant to drop that much money on a camera if it is junk. I'm looking for any advice from owners of the J1 or from people who know photography so they can put it in very simple terms if a J1 is a good camera. She doesn't want a DSLR because of size. Also, I like taking macro pics. Can it do that too?
