Default digital camera opinions?

I'm looking for a new digital camera that's pocket sized and has at least 5 megapixels but dont need something with excessive memory like a 1GB cardbut would like to take some nice high res pics without havin to stop and upload and delete some. Catch is I'm only lookin to spend like 350 at the most and I am refusing to buy off of ebay for electronics

i paid $225 for a 6.1mp Kodak Z760 2 weeks ago. badass camera with some manual mode functions, good video resolution, 32mb internal memory, and i bought a 1gb ultra II card for it. it'll hold like 400 2-3mb pics(~2500x2100 = 30"x40" poster size)

cant go wrong with a Z7590 either. it has a little more zoom.

I just bought my girl a Kodak C340 a week or two ago and it's pretty sweet. 5.1 megs and a video mode. Zoom is 3x optical and I think a 5x digital. Only like 180 too.

ya im looking for a digi camera that has video mode, my buddy has the canon powershot S1, i was thinking about buying the Powershot S2 and upgrading the memory. because his camera is perfect for taping races and the s2 can take 5mp pics while you are recording. my buddy loves the camera and he showed me the S2

Anybody else have any opinions?
