Re: Looking for a cheap but good camera
FinePix S2950 takes 4 AA batteries. Im thinking of buying 8 AA eneloops with the charger ($25). Idea is to have 4 in the camera and 4 in standby for when the ones in the camera run out, then switch and the put the other to charge. Also will get a 8gb class 10 SDHC card ($15) and the camera ($152) putting the total close to $200 as you mentioned. I guess thats fine given that we like the camera (3 inch screen with 460k dots is nice i guess) and have watched several youtube videos of it.
I dont think we will use HD video (or at least not interested in it right now)
Yes I saw this on a youtube video about pressing the shutter half-way to let the camera focus and then pressing it all the way down to snap the pic. I didnt know about this and I agree, probably our bad experiences have been due to operator ignorance.
@for math comment: the places i been accepted have all offered tuition waiver and a TA with stipend (also a fellowship at one place) so im not paying for the PhD. I guess it all comes from grants so in the grand scheme of things, the govt is indeed paying for it.
Thanks for the advise. So you think I will be good to go with the FinePix S2950?

Here's my only concern with that type of P&S.
I've got a similar Fulji from many years ago. It'll fit in a larger jacket pocket, but certainly not in a shirt pocket or the wife's small purse. Will you still be inclined to take it with you? It's something to seriously consider.

The use of the camera will be mainly to take pictures when we go out on the weekends with a group of friends.
