    Hi I will think the Fujifilm F20 fits your budget(less than $490) and requirements. It has very gd iso performance(enabling u to shoot in low-light without flash) and is compact and easy to carry about..

    stretch your budget slightly (500+) and you will get the F30 with ISO3200.. as compared to F20's ISO2000

    other brands seems to be a tough call. there is a Panasonic FX-03 i believe that is under $500 as well but the shots it takes at night seems medicore compared to the fuji.

    think there are a few more affordable models from Canon/Nikon/Sony but i am not sure of their prices/models

    maybe you want to consider a 2nd hand Prosumer in the B&S instead. Better control.

    If budget cannot be more than $500.. then can consider getting the Fujifilm F11 instead..

    CoolPix S4 or S10 would be a good value for $ DC.

    Ya I know did you ask around the cam shop around.Later buy already, then regret and wasted the money you save

    Think twice and listen more before you decide.
