    battery life. thanks

  2. The Canon A560 is $130 and excellent. My sister has the previous model
    A550 and I can confirm that it's top-notch. Fits in a jeans pocket, large
    LCD, reasonably fast shooting, intuitive controls, good image quality,
    good movie mode with sound, and takes standard, cheap SD cards and AA
    rechargeable batteries. (The minor downside for me is that it uses PTP
    mode rather than UMS mode for USB file transfers, which is basically a
    personal personal preference.)

    Here are the recommended cameras from a widely-quoted pro photographer,
    and the A560 is what he calls "the cheapest good camera": http://
