So the time has come to finally replace my digital camera. It has done me well as I bought it back in June 2000...so 6 years for a digital camera, not bad.  However, it is time...as it is like having a walkman when the discmen came out...just doesn't cut it!  However, I'm torn on what route to go...as I have become someone that enjoys taking photographs.  I do not just want a point and shoot camera.  I want some manual controls but I still want it to be compact.  I do not need a "walkman" replacement so to speak:)  I use Adobe photoshop so quality pictures would be nice and I can edit if need be;-)  Obviously I want it to be useful for taking photos at oh say...those running races;-) So I ask the internet world for some suggestions...here are some that I found interesting...but if anyone else has some input I'd love to hear it:) 

Here's some reviews of cameras I found "interesting":

    Depends on your price range. I always liked and used Pentax. Optio series, are small and good. I used Optio S, and MX4. You can record 640x480 MPEG4 video with 10x optical zoom. I used that camera while doing my cross-country ride, it's awesome. It also has great macro capability. I looked at reviews in the link you posted. Noise is not good. You'd have hard time in dim situations. Check steves-digicams.com before you decide and let me know if you have any questions For macro shots check out my photography site http://aperture.blogdns.com/ , select archive and click on MX4 in categories. If you need to see more examples for MX4, let me know.
