In new cameras, look for optical viewfinders (LCD invisible in bright sun) and check battery prices. Also, high mega pixel settings take longer to process and may not be needed unless required for very large pictures or enlarging small parts of big pictures. Maximum print size for a 3 mega pixel setting is 8 x 10 inches. Click links below for more details.
Just saw this camera at Best Buy and think it is a great camera and a best buy. It has an optical viewfinder, image stabilizer, auto focus, and uses NiMH rechargeable batteries. Read as much of the following as you can for other information and help with choosing a camera.
Canon A590IS $129.99 at Staples yesterday.
There is no one particular place to get great buys, but you may see something above that really helps you find the best buy. Click on the link in the information above for an example then search for your camera of choice at the upper left. Camera prices at this link change often.
While most of the cameras out there are really good, I would choose Canon over Nikon because it seems like more camera for the money. Some would say Canon withholds their best technology for high end cameras and Nikon implements their best at all levels. Before you decide, read all the text and links in the information below because it will help you know what to look for in a camera.
There are so many cameras out there it is difficult to say which is best, but digital is definitely the way to go. The second source link will be very helpful as it list most of the cameras out there with prices. The following information should help you know what to look for in a camera.
What gives a camera its picture quality?
The short answer is that it is mostly the skill of the photographer that produces high quality pictures. The lens and camera are very important, but the ability to set the scene, adjust the cameras settings, and hold the camera very still or use a tripod with auto or remote shutter actuation when required is what gets the great pictures.
Lots of great camera tips in these two links. http://www.danscamera.com/Learning/going_digital/#resolution ...
The information about my camera is just to show that you don't need the biggest and best. Just know how to use the one you have.
My camera has 5.2 mega pixel, but I use 3 most of the time because it gives great results, is faster, and takes less memory. Also, it only has a 3 x optical zoom and 7 x digital zoom. I never use the digital zoom because making pictures larger works better on the computer. This is an old camera, but everyone is impressed with the quality pictures it takes ... like magic.
Check with the Geeks in several stores and compare prices. Ask what cameras they own, but don't believe everything you hear. Once you select a camera read all about it in the owner's manual. Just learned that my camera has red-eye prevention and correction. It also has adaptive lighting. You may be able to view owners manuals at this link, but will need to Login. http://www.retrevo.com/s/digital+camera ...
The source links will show most of the cameras out there with prices and help make your digital cameras work better.

I'll fall right in line with the Canon fan club above me.
Consumer Reports for November 2006 has ranked the Canon Powershot A620 as the best compact digital camera. It is becoming almost a legend for longevity at the top of various consumer lists. It looks like this model has been replaced by the A630, which I would expect to be just as popular. The A640 appears quite similar and shares the "600" series numbering, so I guess it's just another upgraded version of the now-classic A620. It looks pretty much the same except for being a 10 MP camera.
I own a few Nikon DSLR's and I'd buy the Canon A630 or A640 for myself.
The A620 was rated about twice as good as any as far a battery life. I hope the A630 and A640 are just as good. Use Energizer e2 LITHIUM batteries and you will be happy with battery life.
With this camera, you will find the memory card is a cute little token of thanks from Canon, but not much more. Buy a 1 GB Sandisk Ultra II or Extreme III card. You will NEED the increased capacity and write speed to fully realize the benefits of your camera. I see a rebate on the Sandisk's faster cards that actually makes them cheaper than the the slower cards, so there is no reason not to buy the faster card. The rebate offer ends 12-31-06, though. If you don't find this elsewhere, I saw it at http://www.bhphotovideo.com
If you want a sleek, smaller camera that will easily fit in your pocket, consider the Canon Powershot SD600. It gives up some of the features of the A630 and 640, but at least it still has an optical viewfinder, which I consider to be essential.
I recommend Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28K 10MP with a premium 27mm wide-angle LEICA lens with an 18x optical zoom, ideal for tight indoor shots and long-distance action photos.

Aha. I'm gonna have to agree, go with a canon powershot, they're good quality. I've got an SD1100 IS.
I personally avoid any olympus digital cameras now, cause mine..wasn't so durable. It dropped from a distance the product description said it could handle and broke :[ And the customer service place people were really rude. So..yeah, not so keen on them.
I've tried a few sony cybershots, and while I can't give an exact model number, they all had clear pictures and could handle low light.
If you want good quality, focus more on the F number (its on the lens, and wikipedia it for more info cause i don't feel like explaining it right now; higher range is better I think) and optical zoom (go with at least 3x for good quality) than on megapixels.

Depends on what Megapixels you want or optical zoom
i suggest getting more than 3x opitcal zoom cause thats gives you the better picture than a mega pixel
id suggest getting
the olympus 1010
cause that is only 250 i believe and it has 7x opitcal zoom and editing features right on the camera and you can change lighting and all
if you look it up you'll probally get more detial on it :]

I concur! A Canon Powershot with IS is a great camera in terms of image quality. Nearly the entire range is worthy... and.
If you want durability and weatherproof cameras to look at, check out Olympus SW series.
Maybe you are more interested in a stylish camera with a touchscreen, check out Sony or Nikon.
Unfortunately, there is no single best... they all have strengths and weaknesses. You might want to consider the kinds of photos you expect to be taking (of what, where, how is the light there, when?, how close?)... and look for a camera that suits those specific needs.
They are like cars in a way, there are different cameras that are better for different reasons.

Choice Magazine (australia) chose Canon Powershot S5IS as their highest rated compact camera. It was quote at (Australian) A$539. It will probably be around 2/3 that price in US dollars or cheaper.
