Default Help required to buy a digital camera

Some factors that influence my decision to buy a digital camera:

1. I would like to "print" digital photos to a max size of 7" X 5" on a 240 or 300 DPI colour inkjet printer.

2. I would like to have manual control over the photos that I take

3. Image quality should be the best in class.

4. Should be able to use AA rechargeable batteries

Could anyone suggest the top 3 cameras given the above criteria?

Thanks in advance.

Minolta D7Hi

1- it will produce a high quality 8x10+ with no problem. 5MP imager.

2- of all the cameras in this class it is the closest to an slr in design and operation. lens cannot be beat in range or design. it is the equivelent of a 28-200 f2.8-3.5 with 2 levels of macro. manual helical type slr zooming with manual ring type focus capability.

3- image quality is excellent. as to best in class that is a subjective statement.

4- comes with and uses 4 AA nimh batteries. you will need a few sets as it is not the kindest on battery consumption.
