There are several cameras in the list that will fit the task without breaking the budget. I have an S2, and I love it, so forgive me for being enthusiastic about it. It works fine in low light, as it has the DIGIC II chip, focus assist, a fast f2.7 to f3.5 35 to 432 mm zoom lens of outstanding quality, and the best IS implimentation on the market. You can beat the performance of the S2 with a DSLR, but it will cost you a couple of grand more up front. Buy the S2, along with several gig of SD cards, and be real happy.
