Hey Guys,

I am looking for:

What budget have you allocated for buying this camera?
$500 at most

Preferably ability to put in pocket or cargo pant pocket.Slightly larger is acceptable.


How many megapixels will suffice for you?
Sky is the limit

Image Quality- 9 Very important....why spend the money and take the time only to have shitty product

Do you care for manual controls?
I would like manual controls so that I can one day progress to a SLR. I would like it to have the option of fully automatic.

General Usage

Generally, cityscapes, citylife, odds and ends, family, portraits, light action

Capable of printing 8X10 at most


Some action


Are there particular brands you like or hate? Hear good things about Canon and Nikon and Fuji

Are there particular models you already have in mind?

A520/A510(Not a big fan of slow flash recycle),S60/S70(haven't tested working model),Powershot S1 IS(on the larger side), A95(haven't tested),Fuji E550, Fuji F810

Well I decided to eliminate the F810 from the running because I was unable to find a model at the store to play with.
