    I'm looking for a good 3-4 megapixel camera that is relatively small, FAST
    startup, good battery life, AA batt capable.

    So far I've found the Nikon Coolpix 3200 seems like a good contender at
    $200..
    PROS
    - Fast Startup
    - Fast SD Cards
    - Good Battery Life with CR-V3 Lithim
    - Capability to us AA batts !!
    - Pretty small form
    - Good Price
    CONS
    - Not many reviews on this camera yet
    - Reports of slow flash recharge between shots

    Any other models I should consider? I really like the ability to use AA
    batteries in a bind!

    Thanks!
    Dave

    I like my Fuji FinePix

    we have 3 within the family (confusion marketing = stick with what you know
    works well)

    look for Fuji S602Z

    some interesting capabilities:
    1/10.000
    f 2,8 (from wide to 6x optical tele)

    Seems like this camera was not sold in the US.. and is larger than I would
    desire... Thanks for the suggestion..

    I've been left "high and dry" by my Nikon's "EN-EL2" proprietary
    batteries... (even with a spare)... Those little batteries can be quite
    unpredictable at times. I'd rather have a larger capacity (2000maH +)
    proprietary battery or the ability to use AA's in a desperate situation.

    The Kodak DX6440 looks rather intrigueing... any comments on that one?
