Ok, its been frustrating looking for a camera. I bought a Canon A75 but didn't like how heavy it was with the 4 batteries and its bulky size so ended up returning it. Before I was concerned with price but now I'm like, well.. I make money and I never spend on myself so why not splurge a little on a decent camera. So please help me choose! I'm kinda debating between the Canon SD300 or Nikon CP4100. But if theirs other cameras you think are better please tell me.

Must haves:

At least 3x optical zoom

SD Card compatible

Good movie mode

Takes great indoor and outdoor pics

Still takes good pics even without flash

Optional but would really like:

Larger LCD screen

4.0mp instead of 3.2mp to allow for cropping

Not too bulky

Faster release button when snapping at photos before my subjects move

There's just so much choices out there. I just need to find the right camera for me.

I would say to go with the SD300, it's considered to be a very high quality ultra-compact. Probably one of the best for it's size and price. You also might consider looking at the Sony W1, as it meets most of your specifications perfectly.

One thing you may have to accept is that taking pictures without the flash with an ultra-compact sometimes/often yields less than perfect results. Especially in low-light situations.

Best of luck with your search!~Jack
