Default Samsung TL-350/WB2000 pre-capture mode: Any similar point & shoot?

I found some cameras with what Samsung calls 'pre-capture' mode, but none that had the fps of Samsung or that kept only the last second's worth of shorts. My search is limited to small p&s. Ideally pocket sized, but can make do with a belt pouch. The TL-350's firmware problems convinced me to keep looking.

Other requirements:
  • 3x or 4x zoom
  • f2.4 or better because I like to shoot near dusk
  • Manual aperture and shutter control modes.
  • Absolutely no touch screen driven menus.
  • IQ is not a big deal, as I was happy with the IQ of 5 year old 4mp 3x Lumix p&s until I dropped it. I a nomad, so my pics are seen only on computer screens for now. When I settle I'll buy something with interchangeable lenses, but those are also an absolute no-no now.
  • Price. At or under price of a Canon S95. I'd give you a $ figure, but it's meaningless because I'm in Thailand, imported electronics are expensive and the dollar keeps weakening against the baht.
  • Video specs don't matter - I never use it.
90% of my shot are outdoors or natural light. The indoors flash stuff are snapshots, I'm just recording history.

You might look at the Samsung TL-320 which has none of the TL-350's problems and is a very good performer.

Can't find anything on the net saying it has the pre-capture feature.
