    I got the SD300 from newegg for $308. 4mp w/ 3x zoom. Good camera, its tiny, light, and has pretty good battery life from what i've seen. I like it. I think its even cheaper now :eek3d:

    The Canon SD series fits your description perfectly and they have several models varying on price, resolution and features. As kungfuwoo said, the sd300 model is great all around and can be had for $280-$350 depending on sales etc. (hint: check slickdeals.net for dell coupons).

    SD 300 uses....SD cards. I prefer this b/c many different products from pdas to cameras to phones etc. use SD cards, whereas memory sticks are proprietary to sony. Unless you have a bunch of memory sticks laying around, stay away...

    i assume the sony you are looking at is the t1 (t3, t7). jsut incase you didnt know it takes the sony memory stick duo stick not the regular memory stick. chances are the ones you have are the older larger sticks and not the duo.

    I recommend something from the Nikon Coolpix series. Nice clear pics, and the macros (even on the cheaper models) are amazing.

    Meh.

    I have a Canon A70 that takes great pics. My brother initially bought the Canon A80 a couple of months ago. He took it back after he found a great deal online for a Coolpix 5400 or 4500 (not certain on the model number, but it's either 4 or 5 megapixel). Anyhow, he was telling me last week what a great macro mode it supposedly had, but he and I both took macro mode shots with our cameras today of the same bright green frog that was hiding out in an aloe vera plant. His Nikon shot came out dark, blurry and grainy. Meanwhile, my A70 (3 megapixel) macro shot of the same frog was amazing. None of his multiple shots was even worth zooming in on, but when you zoomed in on my shoot (when viewing on the camera's display), you could see incredible detail and beautiful color.

    I've always heard good things about Nikons as well, but I wasn't impressed with any of the shots he took with his today. Perhaps he's screwed up the shutter speed or something. :dunno:
