I would second the Sony p-200. I use DSLR, but when I made recent school trip that lasted a month or so, the SLR was extra weight and too noticeable. I went to my Sams club and decided upon the P-200. I found that the P-200 performed very well for a point and shoot with images crips and well exposed. Outdoor shots make tend to overexpose the sky, which is remedied by adjusting the exposure meter.form said:I would've recommended a Sony Cybershot DSC-P200 or Fuji Finepix F30 personally, but...if you're satisfied with kodak, then I guess it doesn't matter.
