I am looking to get a new digital camera and have been spending the last couple weeks reading Steve's reviews, going to stores etc. It seems like I want a camera with no cons but of course that is impossible. Here is my wish list, does anyone have recommendations on cameras to look at:

1. Price under $350

2. zoom - would like 4X or higher

3. Would like camera to still fit in a pocket

4. LCD screen that would gain up in low light

5. MP is not high criteria but range 4-6

My plans for camera use: I want a camera that takes great photos of people as I take it to family get togethers quite often and would like it to take good shots of my 3 year old. Also would like it to have a bit more zoom for outdoor shots while on vacation.

Cameras i have been looking at but am still open to others:

Nikon Coolpix L1
Canon Powershot A520
Panazonic DMZ LZ2

Well any assistance would greatly be appreciated.

You might want to take a look at the Olympus C-550 as well. It meets all of your requirements, but might be a bit bigger than you desire. It is currently selling for around $(US) 200.

Look at a Canon Powershot A610 for about $275 to $300.

That would still give her some cash to buy some rechargeable batteries and maybe a 256 or 512mb compact flash card.
