Default Need upgrade suggestions

Hi everyone!
I'm a newbie to this message board but not exactly a newbie to digital cams.

I currently have the Kodak LS443 4.0 megapixel camera and am looking to upgrade. I am not at all happy with the image quality of this camera.

I'm looking for a camera that is 5.0 mp or above. It must take good indoor pictures as well as outdoor since we do alot of outdoor activities. Fairly easy to operate, I want something that I can just "point and shoot" and still get good quality without having to adjust settings for each different condition.

The price range I'm looking at is $450 - $500ish.

ALL suggestions are welcome! I've read reviews until I'm seeing double of everything :shock: so I figured I would give this a try and then review just the ones that you all recommend.

Thanks!

Default $$$$

If you could manage a few more dollars I would suggest the Sony 717

I would recommend the Olympus C5050. It has a very fast lens for indoor pictures and 3X optical zoom It produces excellent photos and it is 5 mp. Should be in your ballbark price on the internet.

Thanks for the suggestions however those cameras seemed a bit too much for me in regards to the settings factor.

I think I've narrowed my choices down to these 4 so I'm open to criticism or suggestions on any of them.

Pentax Optio 555
Minolta Dimage G500
Sony Mavica CD500
Canon Powershot S50

Out of the group you list I would go with the G500.
