searching would help. but short answer go pick-up a canon a60 (2.1MP) for $400 you will not regret it. The canon people should pay me some

i was looking myself for a camera and basically came down to 2 of them

either the canon a70 ($499) or the sony cybershot P72 ($499) both were the same price at futureshop, only the sony came with a rechargable battery. but after reading some reviews the canon looks like it comes out on top. i've seen the a70 for $471.50 on a website but don't remember where. also read that they were $299US down in the states at staples if u dont mind the drive or have some family there.

I don't mind helping, but a price range would be good, also, would that price include other stuff, like camera bag, or memory, or extra battery?

Whiskey
up to $700 camera only - s/b at least 4 megapix

i'm leaning towards the canon s400 - i think i can get it w/ extended warranty for about $650 (excluding extras)

Whatever you buy, dont bother with anything less tham 3 megapixels. With at least 3MP you can still get your pictures developed professionally and they'll look sharp and clean without pixelation.
Try and buy a camera made by a KNOWN camera manufacturer. Stay clear away from things like sony, or panasonic, etc. Those companies make great televisions, but SUCK ASS at making cameras or speakers. I dont care what anyone says. The layout of these cameras they make is awful!
