I, too, am in the market for a digital camera. There are soooooooooo many to choose from. Here's what my main uses will be:
Photographing grandchildren
Vacation Pictures - Would like some zoom capability.
I don't plan to print pictures from home often - will probably still take them to Wal-Mart, etc for printing. Also, will put some on the internet but not often. I'm really just looking to replace my film camera so I can only develop the good pictures and not have to take many shots to get one good one.

I definitely want a small camera, pocket sized, and one that does not have much of a lag in shutter speed. I'm very basic in photography - need the camera to do the work by itself.

Also, some of the new cameras have a small video portion with sound. Are any of them any good - just to catch those special moments when my grandchildren are doing something way cute!!!

Any help someone can offer would be greatly appreciated! Reading all the reviews on-line have only gotten me more confused.

I'm hoping not to spend more than $400 to include the memory stick, etc.
