First... I find it unlikely that apple will create a digital camera...

As for good digital cameras... a lot depends on your price range....

I'd recommend looking at 4 cameras:

Olympus D40 - http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/cameraDetail.php3?cam=311 - $799 retail
Powershot S30 - http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/cameraDetail.php3?cam=320 - $599 retail
Powershot S40 - http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/cameraDetail.php3?cam=319 - $799 retail
Powershot S300 Digial Elph - http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/cameraDetail.php3?cam=260 - $599 retail

You can definately get them cheaper from a reputable place. I've had good luck with B&H Photo ( http://www.bhphoto.com ).

All are good cameras... the common thread amongst them is that they are all small. They are not SLR's... and are for casual, carry in your pocket convenience....
