Digital camcorder may be better choice for your wants.Still cameras are very limited in motion mode.

Take a look at the Panasonic FZ20. 12x zoom lense, audio and excellent video mode.

Like wagaboo I got the Kodak DX7590 and think it's great. Prices do vary depending on where you shop. I got mine at SAM's club on line for $418 then got the $50 rebate from Kodak.

I would go with one of the smaller and easy to transport Canon Digital ELPH series. They take fantastic shots, got great reviews, and they're worth the extra buck. Kodak's product(s) are something i just can't recommend anymore. My "first" digital camera was a Kodak LS-443 and it was the biggest piece of junk I ever saw. Yeah, it "used" to take great pictures, don't get me wrong, for a subpar camera, that is. After owning it for only 8 months, it had to be sent back to Kodak because the lens gear mechanisms broke. After it came back from Kodak, it worked for another 5 months before outside shots washed out no matter what setting I used. The quality control of Kodak is what's going to cause their demise. I can't recommend ANY Kodak camera. Sorry, Kodak.

I, like Wagaboo and CWO have a Kodak but I got the DX6490 instead at Wal-Mart. It does most of the things the 7590 does but it usually cost about 100- 150 dollars less. It will meet all of your criteria but won't put you in the poor house doing it. Here's a shot taken with the DX6490 yesterday. It was taken on full auto and sports mode because the subjects were on the move.
