help me make a choice...

i want a new digital camera. my older one is 1.3 MP and has auto everything. great for hiking, lousy for web pictures.

i would like to get another, ideally i would get

2+ Mega Pixels
Manual and Auto Focus
heck, anything manual and auto. im more used to using traditional cameras anyhow.

im tired of no control in point and shoot cameras.

ideally i would spend no more than $450 or so.

any ideas? or should i just stick with my good film camera and scan everything in?

thanks

imo you would be hardpressed to do better than nikon coolpix 4500, but i am biased - i have been using nikon for 40+ years.
shop carefully - some places include 'value added accessories' in their price that are just junk.

I have had very good results from my Canon G2. You may be able to find one for your price since the G3 is now out. The G2 is 4 megapixels and has a very nice little zoom lens that works great for landscapes, portraits and everything in between. It has an excellent macro function that gets a very crisp image for knife shots and the like.
