I think you are looking for a point and shoot not a DSLR, so that rules out the nikon D40x.

I like the nikon point and shoots that I have had in the past, but after reading a lot of canon reviews I think that may be my next point and shoot.

I also have an Olympus stylus 720sw, which is waterproof to 10' deep. It was fun to have in mexico snorkeling, but I think that you will get better pictures with the canon's or nikons.

4mp and up will be plenty unless you are blowing up your pictures.

let us know what you get and how you like it.

I recently got a Nikon D40 with an 18-55mm lens and a 55-200 mm lens for $609, and I love it. If you want a DSLR camera and your on a budget, I highly recommend this one. I wanted to get a zoom lens and sacrificed a few megapixels ( the D40x has 10 megapixels compared to 6 megapixels for the D40) for the 55-200mm lens still saved money. I'll post a few pics I took in a new thread.

Jhow, good choice. There is often too much emphasis on megapixels. 6 is plenty unless you are making huge prints.
