Nikon CoolPix880 - 3.2MP, 'clunky' model
A twice hand me down digicam. Once from my sis and bro-in-law, and yet again from my dad... both who gave it away when they got better digicams.
If I were to get a new digicam, I'd definately go for more/better features including but not limited to:
-more compact - not only is this cam physically bigger than those compact models, but it's also bulkier, or juts out in certain places more making it even less pocketable. It's still bigger than "bar of soap" form factor digicams even if I were to saw off the jutting parts out
-more MPs - 3.2MP is nice, but 5 is even better for a reasonably low price. In a pinch, you should be able to lower the MP to save space.
-at least VGA video - Obviously, a $1300 camcorder is far superior, but I don't have the $$ nor do i need the extra quality and features of it.
-takes SD cards - My PDA alr uses SD cards. Many of my friends and families use SD (some Mem Sticks) so there's good compatibility there.
-warms up quickly - this one u have to wait 3 seconds or so
-auto opens lens - not hard to do, but is a nuissance on this digicam none of the less
