    I'm looking to buy a new camera as a gift to myself for christmas. Anyways, other than megapixels, how do I compare cameras? I'm mostly looking for realistic / high quality pictures over aesthetics of the camera/menu, and would like the find the camera that takes the best shots for the money.

    If it matters, I'd be using the camera more to try and capture scenery and landscapes, etc; than using it at a party or something.

    Probably in the $100-200 range, depending on difference in quality if it's really noticable. Might wait to go higher if it's not worth buying a camera in that range

    I'd go with one of the Canon sd series point and shoots. If you can stretch your budget to $300 or so, you may be able to snag a used G9/G10 which would provide some really nice pictures and give you better manual controls.
