P310 VS. S9100 Which  Nikon is better, and why does the P310 have so little zoom? I don't know much about cameras, but I really liked the features of the p310 but dont like that it doesnt have much zoom.  Im mostly gonna be using it a lot indoors/low light to take pics of my kids, and I also wanted something that takes good quality pictures for my hairbow business. Any suggestion on these cams or any others? I'd like to stay around $500
