Hey all,
I'm touring Israel and Europe this summer and my current camera - Canon A60 is beginning to act the goat. Here's what I'm looking for in a new camera with priorities listed highest to lowest.

- Pocket sized (like the Canon Elph or Casio Exislim EX500.) I consider the A60 I have to be uncomfortably large for pocket use.
- at least 3x optical zoom, more is preferred
- good image quality in a variety of lighting settings
- at least 4 megapixels
- price no higher than $300 + $100 for at least 1GB of memory
- Ability to take movies with sound, of at least a few minutes in duration
- Use compact flash memory - or something else equally as cheap and ubiquitous
- Run on standard nimh batteries (this is unlikely to happen I know given the pocket size of the camera, but wth I'll put it down anyway).

Thanks for your suggestions.

Why not take a look at the Casio Z-120 camera.
