mp = megapixel
I want to carry a tiny camera meaning about 3 x 2 x 2" (about) so as to make closeup photos of paperwork.
From experience a 2mp - 1024 x 768 should be enough resolution for an 8.5 x 11" sheet of paper.

It should have a good flash that will stop down well to low level so as not to over expose.
I'd like to pay about $100 or less for it.
That's about it.
I intend to keep it handy for bookkeeping purposes of receipts and any other paperwork that I want a digital record of.

The fuji cameras from about 4 years ago impressed me. I recall buying it and within a few minutes taking a closeup photo of a
CD. The flash and the exposure and focus was excellant. It used only 2 -AA batteries that lasted quite a long time.
It was about 5 x 3 x 2 " .
While that camera is probably $60 now I'd still like to get one that's physically smaller and lighter.

That particular one was a 2 or 3 mp camera that I bought for a friend who used it
for occasional work around the office.

4 years have elapsed and my Steve's friends have had more experience now with many cameras. What do you recommend?
