Need A New Point & Shoot

I broke my camera and need a new one. So please give me some recommendations. I am looking for something similar in ease to use as my Casio Exilim Z50.

Specifications:
-6.0MPs +
-4x zoom
-Pre-established setting for different photos (Indoor, Scenery, Night, etc.)
-Rechargable battery
-Adjustable ISO and shutter speed (if possible)
-SD card only
-Around $200

Any recommendations? These are variable if it's a good deal.

Re: Need A New Point & Shoot

the ugly canon ones have good interface and adjustability. The prettier canons (rectangular ones) don't have much adjustability (just ISO).

helpful eh?

i believe the SD series (the pretty ones) don't have much adjustability; at least mine doesn't

hey nick check out your local target. Mine has a bunch of digital cameras on clearance, they had some decent $250+ ones for about $160.

Re: Need A New Point & Shoot

Thanks for the suggestions guy. I do like that Nikon.

I'm going out sometime soon to look at cameras, probably Friday. Let me ask this. What are brands I should be sticking to and what brands should I stay away from? Brands like Nikon, Canon, Casio, Fuji, and Kodak come to mind. I'll stay away from Pentax and Sony. That a good list to go on?
