i am looking for a new digital camera with following features:

- few noise
- 640x480*30fps video with sound
- manual ISO, shutter speed, aperture etc. settings
- at least 4MP, better 5+
- overall good image quality
- 250$ maximum (camera only)
- overall good image quality
- design, size and brand insignificant

Cameras I looked at were Sanyo VPC-J4 EX and KonicaMinolta G530 and 600.
The Sanyo offers everything I need, besides manual settings. The Konicas everything but good video recording.

Is there any camera which offers all features I desire?
Thanks in advance.

Yes, the Fuji S5100 has all of the features you desire, and with a little hunting, you should be able to buy one within your price constraints. The S5100 has: low noise, 640x480 video resolution @30 FPS, full range of manual settings, 4 MP, and very good picture and video quality. In addition, it has a 10X zoom, AF assist lamp, uses AA batteries (with excellent battery life), and is very well balanced and easy to hold.

I recommend it.

Good luck with your search.

Best Buy currently has the Fuji S5100 at $349.99. Then there is a $50 mail in rebate for purchases thru Sept 3, 2005; so the camera's net priceis only $300.
