What's the best digi cam on the market right now for a good price? I need one.
What's your max $ ?

Is 4 mp good enough?

How much manual control will you need?

I'd say max $ would be around 4-5 hundo.

I need it mainly for normal shooting... nothing super-duper fancy or flashy. I don't really have the skills as Andrew or Haf do.

On the other hand, I'd like to start getting into it.

Haf - I assume you leaned it against a window or something, unless you can handhold 2 seconds :mihihi:

Ryan - Really depends on what you're looking for. A super-compact? A big-zoom? Does image quality come first or do you want video capability?

Pretty good amount of zoom would be nice. Image quality is important... and video is not. I have a camcorder for that.

I like the powershots.

I think I like that one the best for the price. It got good reviews, too.

Yeah the a610 is a very capable camera. I'd check pricegrabber to see if you can get a cheaper price on it.
