I currently have a Canon PowerShot S200 Digital Elph. I'm just beginning to research newer cameras, but am a bit overwhelmed by all the information. Hopefully, you can help me narrow down some of the choices. Here's what I'm looking for:
- at least 4 megapixels because my wife and i typically use the camera most when we're on vacation and we like to blow up pictures to 10X10 or so. Is 4 megapixels enough?
- compact size. something similar in size to my Canon would be nice. it's nice to be able to carry it in my pocket without it weighing down my shorts/pants.
- uses compact flash storage because I recently purchased a 1gb cf card in anticipation of our next vacation at the end of this month. if this cuts out a lot of the cameras that fit my other criteria, then I can cross this one out.
- easy to use. I'm a very, very inexperienced photographer(and I use the term loosely), so ease of use is key.

That's pretty much what's important to me in this search. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
