Camera Gurus what do you think

I have decided to retire my trusty Olympus D490 2.1 mp

Don't laugh it has served me well picture quality has always been excellent and as I don't print a lot of pictures larger than 5x7 the limited MP has not been a big problem.

I am leaning strongly toward the Canon A570. Will be in the US and Best Buy etc sell for $200.00. Online is better but no address in US is a hassle.

Gurus what are your thoughts on this camera, and suggestions for others in the same price range that might be considered better?

P.S. Call me old fashioned but I still want a camera that takes AA batteries that you can recharge or buy anywhere for next to nothing.

You can't go wrong with the A570. It's the best in the price range if you don't find it too thick....imho. You get image stabilization, great image quality, and all the manual controls you would want. (very powerful customization) I've had my Canon A70 for many years and am a Canon fan.

Anything Canon is safe and anything not Olympus 2.1 megapixels is safe. I can't think of anything Canon that is over valued beyond it's class.

What do I think? I think people should start posting camera questions in the photography forum.
