the panasonic ZR1 is beyond your price range. retailing at $400-500.

the panasonic LZ10 is retailing for less than $200, though.

Key word pixel density. The more pixel per area the more noise. So compare the size of the sensor and the amount of megapixels. Google for image noise to find the detailed explanation. In addition, please do yourself a favour and read up the existing threads in Newbies Corner - Articles and Guides. There are some very good ones focusing on compacts and prosumers.

also search about "THE MYTH OF THE MEGAPIXEL"

to understand why more megapixels doesn't mean better image quality.
