Default 3 megapixel with video/audio pls help

I need a nice 3 min megapixel under $400 for taking pix of my two beautiful boys and perhaps an eBay item or two. I'd love vid with audio for a quick email of the boys to their auntie.

Also, I'd like at least a little optical focus.

I had the Kodak DX 4330 but it wouldn't work in low light, and most of my photos are indoors.

I'm considering

Muchos gracias in advance....

Check the Oly C700 at the Oly refurb site.

Cost is $359

Another possible solution is the Sony DSC P71, a 3 Megapixel camera which you can buy at Dbuys.com for about $300.

The C series Olympus might be overkill if you just want a point and shoot for snapshots. A better choice might be the Olympus D550. 3MP 3X Optical zoom for $277 at www.buydig.com with USA warranty.
