    I'm looking for an inexpensive digital camera and found the Sanyo VPC-S500.
    It looks like it would meet my needs, e.g. five megapixels, optical
    viewfinder, 3x optical zoom, and SD memory slot. It uses AA batteries so I
    figure I can get rechargeable AA. Unfortunately, I can't try before I buy
    (mail order) so I wanted to get opinions. How is this camera for shutter
    lag, auto-focusing, picture quality and battery life? Also, I can't find
    out the exact case size. Does anyone know the measurements? I checked the
    Sanyo site and can't find a listing for it, but if anyone can point me to a
    manual.pdf I'd be grateful.

    Well, I did find a manual and discovered that this model doesn't have an
    optical viewfinder, which is a must. Any suggestions for pocket size
    camera meeting my requirements for under $100 will be appreciated.
