Digital camera suggestions

I'm looking to replace my old Panasonic camera. Basically what I want is point and shoot, something small, 7Megapixels+, running on AA or AAA batteries (don't want to deal with recharging the battery when traveling), preferably in $200 range, oh yeah SD card is preferred. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Any of the Canon Powershot Elph Series. I have an SD630 that I use when I can't easy bring my DSLR with me. Takes wonderful outdoor photos.

You are going to limit yourself if you must use AA or AAA cells as those camera bodies will be much larger. Just buy a second battery and charge them in a rotation.

SD850 IS is around that range - the good sub compacts cant use aa - to big (besides.. they only last like 50 shots) as was said earlier.. buy 2 batteries (they are like 15-20 bucks... and last a lot longer)

also check dpreview.com
my buddy is looking right now and asked me this question over the weekend..

they just posted a detailed review on dpreview ... thought you might be interested

I also have a canon power shot and it's awesome. Small, takes excellent pictures, and I find the battery life to be quite long. The charger is small and easy to take with you. Buy a spare and you'll always be fine.
In fact, if you do get some that runs on traditional betteries, you'll find yourself running out of juice far too often.

+1 on the recharger thing. Canon's recharger is small and light.

Canon Elph Series is the best choice, I think.

Thanks for all the advise. Was going to pick up Canon SD1000, but desided to wait for sd1100 which I got today. I love this camera, it's tiny and takes excellent pics. Got a good deal on it too, $245 with 1GB card after taxes.
