Hmm .. why not try the A70 ..

for a couple of bucks you can get the A80 with that price which can function as a pns mode as well as a semi pns camera :)

You might like to check out the reviews @ www.dpreview.com :)
What is pns?

Does it mean everything auto, just put your subject within the frame and shot that's all?

Yes , this is the auto mode for most semi-pns cameras .

However , it may not capture what you want :p
Why do you say that is may not capture what you want? It is in terms of exposure and focus etc?

There are several things that you can achieve when you make decision on how the picture is being taken

1) Controling the shuttle speed allows you to take the silky like waterfalls you see in a lot of postcards

2) Controling aperature allows you to take pictures where the object is focused and background is blurred

3) Focusing control allows you to focus on what you like and not leave it to the camera to decide what it thinks on what you want in a photograph .

Can't give you much help over here coz I'm an amateur learning to shoot too :p

A good reference which I find useful can be found here

Hope it helps ;)
