    i think Canon A540 is a good buy. my friend's got it. not bad pictures for the price. only thing is LCD has too much less pixels.

    w50 and 30 both are good... both have expandable memory and they have a Sony battery which comes with a charger...they are not compatable with traditional AA battery... so u need to get a spare one afterwards ..

    i think W100 is latest... but don't know the price
    __________
    take a quote of Sony CyberShot H2 cam... if u need to add a little this cam worth that... otherwise go for W100... W70... W50... the only difference in these 3 is the megapixel where W100 is 8.1 ... w70 is 7.2.... and all have 3X optical zoom...

    Sony CyberShot H2 has a 6megapixel but has a briliant 12X optical zoom.

    Hmm .... Home
    Well for me the Megapixels don't make way too much difference after 5 MP because typically it's more than enough to satisfy all ur requirements but good optical Zoom is an must..

    Go for maximum megapixels only if you want to enlarge your pictures too much.
    Go for a long zoom only if you want to shoot from a long distance as in case of wildlife or bird photography. And for an inexperienced photographer with unsteady hands, a 12X zoom without image stabilization will be of little use.

    3X Optical zoom is more than enough. Yes, you can have the images as large as medium sized photoframe or even more than that.

    well OPTICAL ZOOM is never enough for me... sony gives only 3X in all the w100 50 and 30... so i will say go for 50 ... u can have good pics and can have a medium size pics easily...

    3MP will give u 2048 px X 1536 px images
    5MP will give u 2592 px X 1994 px images
    8MP will give u 3264 px X 2448 px images

    So for normal purpose i always take pics in 3MP.. but when i need them for graphic work (thats my profession) i take them in 5MP or 8MP...
