Hello, first let me say I'm not a native English speaker so please forgive me for any mistakes I make.

I'm looking to bay a digital camera that I could use for family/friends photos as well as a bit more artistic ones. I want alight camera- like the Canon powershot (a friend of mine had one), between 3 to 4 MP, 2 AA battaries... pretty common I think. The thing is, my Friend's camera is a bit slow, the time spent from when she pushed the button to when the picture is actually taken, and then showed is too long for the kind of pictures I like to take.

My budget is up to 300-350$, but I'm trying to keep it under 230$ (which about 1000 NIS). I'd also be glad to hear about models which are a bit older, that way I could get them second-hand and save alot of money (I live in Israel, and people here would sell a 2004 model for 1/4 of it's price so they could buy a 2005 model for twice the original price of the one they're trying to sale...).

So, it you'll help me I'd be very glad.

You might try to find a Sony P93, which uses two AA's, has manual exposure controls, and according to the review here, has a lag time under 1/2 second.
