    Probably a little out of date, but I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P93, and I love it.

    -5.1MP
    -640x480 video w/sound
    -Burst mode
    -Awesome LCD [Pretty high res.]
    -3X optical zoom
    -Claims 410 shots/ 210 min. on a single charge.
    -And of course, great picture quality.
    -Uses 2xAA Batteries BUT it came with 2xNiMh batteries & charger. And I love the fact that it uses standard batteries, rather than a proprietary Li batt. since I could just go to any thrift store and buy some If I absolutely needed to.


    ** I bought it for about 280 USD quite a while ago. I'm very satisfied. I think there's a 7MP version out now...

    Sub $500.. you can get a Minolta DiMage Z2, Z3, or Z4 for that price. Has every possible feature you could ask for. It's nearly a SLR camera... but its not. Its still a point+Shoot camera. Turns on and ready to take a shot in like 1/2 a second. Check up on that type of camera. I was going to purchase myself one, but I ended up buying a Kodak C340 for size convience.

    If size doesn't matter...then get the Minolta... they are awesome.
