    - 3MP sufficient
    - reasonable battery life

    Check out the Canon A400 and IXUS 40 respectively. Don't know about how good the cameras are though.

    Check out panasonic for its stablilizer, cos slim camera difficult to take pix at night. Auto mode night scene tends to have longer shutter speed which make it difficult to take pix handheld (image will blurr). With stabilizer will definitely help. Just my opinion.

    Why don't you just consolidate yr money and buy only one ? Suggest u buy used digital camera as the new ones are still quite ex, even for a 3.2MP.

    The other thing I've found is that while AA NiMh are cheap, they lose their charge quite quickly and u have to make sure u charge them before u use yr camera. Got caught a few times when the batt was flat after a week not using.

    Now I'm using Lithium rechargeables only.
