Cover me, I'm goin' in!

I am getting ready to go into the market for a new digital camera. I would really like to stay in the range of $200 or so.

I think the only things I really have an opinion about right now are that I would like it to be small and lightweight and have a pretty good shutter speed.

Anybody have any suggestions? Anything you would like on your camera that you don't have and think may be useful? Anything you just had to have and then realized it wasn't so important after all?

It will mainly be used for point and shoot kinda things, but it would be nice to get some good pics from the zoo when we go.

Alright, I'm goin' in!

You're probably home by now, and I'm chock-full of camera advice! Crap! Whadja get?!!

gnightgirl: Bring it on! I have only done online shopping so far. I will take all the advice you got!

GNG is probably the best camera advice person around!

I have a Canon A520. I love it! It even makes little videos (and I really like that feature.) I think it was just over $200 around Christmas of '05. It's probably way cheaper now.

I love how you're using so much punctuation. I'm not sure these earlier posts were written by the same frugalmom that I know and love today. :-)

danni: HA! I think I felt like it was early on and I had to follow the rules....Clearly, I dont feel that way now. I can do whatever I want. :)

Oh, and we got a bigger camera...not at all what I had in mind. But it has decent enough zoom.
