get the A510 or A520 :) cheap and good. altho not samll. since ur budget only $500, cant rec u Ixus cos its $600+

with ur budget, think u can get

A510 - $320 (estimated)
canon gives free GP charger + 4 Gp batts (not sure if promo still on)
Lowepro case - $15
512mb Kingston - $65

should be within budget. :)

but if u want a really idiot proof cam...get the Fuji F10 lor :)

and for batteries...get from Eastgear. dont think ive heard anyone complain about EG batts before. :thumbsup:
