I am buying my first digital camera and would really appreciate some advice.

I am looking to buy acamera with at least 3 MP.

I don't care much about zoom or digital controls or video (would be nice, but not that important). Want a point and click. Most important thing is GOOD QUALITY PICS and a good price!!!

I am taking pictures of my 3 year old twin boys, so I need something that will not take blurry pictures if they are moving (and they are ALWAYS moving!).

I would like it to be fairly small (but doesn't have to be subcompact).

I had narrowed it down toeither:
Nikon 3700 - $299 - 100 rebate = $200., OR
Nikon 4300- $279 - 50 rebate = $229
HP R707 - $300 includes 256MB card

But then I read some reviews that they can take blurry pics. Can someone please tell me if this is true, and/or recommendanother good camera that will would be suitable for taking pictures of energetic little boys?

Thanks very much,

Buy the nikon coolpix 4300. He's really great! And certainly the macro pictures.I've bought it one month ago. Very easy to use. But note that movies dont have any sound

Nikon 3700 is great if you want to take video shots too.

It supports high quality (640x480) video capture with sound.

Be sure to buy the fastest SD memory if you turn into 3700.
(example Kingmax).

One negative thing in 3700 is that the camera adjusts ISO-level automatically. Somebody likes this but manual ISO would be a nice thing.
