For any type of electronic work, MP is utterly useless as a measure. Lens quality and such matter a LOT more.

A) Decide Budget.
B) Decide size of camera.

Me, I'm fond of DSLRs. My older P&S is a Ultrazoom Olympus. But there's nothing like a nice wide angle.

I'm fairly clear on my budget: Sub-$500. Ideally sub-$400. The SD800 IS is ideal from a price perspective, because I can get it plus a 2Gb SD card plus leather case and extra battery for under $450 all told.

DSLRs are cool, and in a way I'd love to have one (I really envy the cool stuff I see friends doing with them), but I don't think the photography is so much the focus of traveling and so on that I would want to have to put so much effort into lugging it around. Pocket-sized is a good thing from my perspective. Oh, and also... once you go the DSLR route, it can become an expensive hobby!

You can't beat the size of the SD400...it is so damn small!
