Happy New Year to all members!

I'm looking for a small and compact digital camera (even discontinued or one that is on its last leg will do). My purpose is just to:

1) "Scan" slides/negs for web use.
2) Light meter for my film body

As it is not used for general photography, I am not inclined to spending a lot on it.

I have tried "scanning" on the Canon A70 but it doesn't go near enough. DPreview gave me the Canon A410 and the A610. The former about $100 cheaper where I live. However, the A610 has the 1 cm Macro that I think may be more useful.

Are there any others?

Your thoughts are appreciated.
