    Even for a budget digital camera, quality of the product (its lens) plays a crucial part as well. For less than $800, I would recommend the Nikon Coolpix 4300 (4 megapixel). Have used it before in the past, very good grip for a budget camera and good quality pictures.

    Go for ixus 500/430!
    I think it fits your budget and purpose...
    Quality of pictures wise, you do not have to worry at all.
    cos i own a ixus 400.

    Happy Shopping!
    Make sure u do a more thorough homework before buying to avoid any regrets!

    go for the nikon 4300.. it a good camera to start wif.. I have friends who use
    canon ixus500.. the feedback from them is also not bad...I would suggest you go down personally to try both the camera and have a feel of holding and using it...

    I would suggest you go down cathay photo at penisula plaza.. the staff there are friendly and they can explain more about the cameras to you and the features... it will be better if you can bring someone who knows about camera down wif you..

    happy shooting.. show us the photos u take from the new camera...

    I just got myself an Olympus C-750UZ and highly recommend it !!

    Quite suit your needs :

    01. Budget = about $800
    02. Megapixel count = 4.0 instead of 5.0
    03. Optical zoom factor = 10x Optical Zoom (Zoom till 380mm)
    04. Size = Compact not too bulky
    05. Type of batteries used = AA batt (Can get from anywhere conveniently)
    06. Weight = Not too heavy
    10. What kind of pictures are you hoping to take? = For travel purpose. Very
    good for day time pics, very sharp and crisp. As for night shots, some say not so good for night/low light condition, I havent try out to shoot at nite though.

    One more advantage : Got manual control and hotshoe !!

    I've got my Ixux500 for about a week now and am pretty pleased with it. It's compact and light, which is what I'm after. Have only taken indoor shots and it's been good

    the ixus430 and ixus500 models were launched very recently. to me, the ixus430 is very similar to the ixus400, both 4million pixels.. the ixus500 has 5million pixels! You might wanna check out the canon website.. they have a comparison table there. or even CNet...
