You are on the right track.
Just keep looking at newly released cameras til you have what you
want. They are getting cheaper and better with every new release.
DO NOT BUY A CAMERA THAT WAS RELEASED LAST YEAR!!!

>Hi - I'm looking for recommendations for a cheapish digital camera. Mainly
>it'll be used for snapshots, but I want also something that can produce
>pretty decent amateur shots and maybe the odd short movie. From my brief
>bit of research, I've come up with the following criteria which I think
>suits my needs.
>Easy to Use, Point and Click
>4 MPixel or higher
>Compact Flash (I want 256Mb eventually)
>Good Optical Zoom, Auto Focus, CCD
>Acceptable Indoor Shots
>Decent Battery Life
>2.2" Colour LCD
>Movies (Preferably not quicktime, and of decent length and resolution)
>Microphone an advantage
>USB (2.0 Preferable) under WinXP SP2
>Budget £100-200 (£250 tops)
