I know this thread is a few weeks old.. But I just spent a month doing research... Best buy, Future shop and Henry's all suggested to me for all around cameras canon, Nikon and Fuji.. and if I was more worried about print quality than online quality to go with HP.
Consumer Reports listed a camera above the one I bought as the number 1, and 2 below mine as the number 10..
I ended up with the Canon Powershot A530 5.0 MP..
For basic features with barely flipping through the book I'm loving it so far. Lot of people on another forum are jealous cause it's taking nicer pics than theirs do.. I paid 246 for mine + tax..
