Hi: I've researched Digital Camera's and I was impressed with the Fuji-3800, I bought mine less than $370 at Best Buy, But I have seen it as low as $302, It takes super pictures and has a 6 X optical zoom and 3 X Digital Lens, light weight, I also was looking at an HP Digital with 8 X optical zoom, but that was over $600.. The 16 MB Xd - card that comes with it just don't cut it, so I brought the 128 MB Xd Card also for $69 at Best Buy, Check out Steve's reviews and make a choice...

Check out the Oly C4000. Some Fujis have very good movie capabilities.

Just remember that the 'movies' usually only turn out good outdoors in daylight: it isn't great for parties, etc.
Instead of adding another suggestion to your list, as many may do on this board, the S30 is a good choice.

Just remember, you can boost the ISO in movie mode just like you can in camera mode (at least in the Oly)...that will improve low-light performance (at the cost of some more noise/graininess).
