Hi all,

OK I have a DSC-V1 but have been disapointed with the battery life and the small screen plus I am a newbie and my only other experience is with a Kodak LS663, which is excellent but i want more control. A z730 would be good but that doesn n't haveenough controls No WB :?

I am thinking of A620, it has everything I want manual controls, good low light but why do they look so cheap my DSC-V1 looks like a quality item compared to this. Can any point out any rivals to the A610/A620 please? Limit of £250 please?

A casio P600/P700 looks perfect, lots of modes (whilst I learn) fast, good lens and very helpful manual help screen but can i see the screen in low light and i can't get a new one in the UK?

AOlympusC-5500 would be great but is big slow and the SP 350 is worse ihave heard

What I want is

small ish so no DSLRs

preferably metal or good quality plastic

full manual controls (inc WB) so NOT casio z750 etc

2in screen or more

good in low light screen and focus, AF light

histogram in record mode/and grid lines

AA batteries or good battery life

Optical viewfinder

modes whilst learning

fast focus/burst for sports

Asking too much?

HELP please

Looked in forums no idea...
