Nikon's Coolpix S6100 Digital Camera (Red) has what you're looking for in a camera, gloriously presented in a slick little package barely 1" thick, and weighing in at 6.2 oz (175 g). You have a major 16MP CCD sensor for great image quality, plus a sharp 7x wide-angle Nikkor 28-196mm (equivalent in 35mm format) lens and a brilliant 3" LCD touch screen monitor with 460K-dot resolution--you can focus by just touching a point on the screen.
There's a lot more to the S6100, though--it's got one-touch 720p HD video, 4-way VR image stabilization to banish blurry pictures forever, sensitivity up to 3200 ISO that lets you keep shooting even when it gets dark, Subject Tracking Autofocus that locks onto a moving subject to keep it in focus at all times, and Best Shot Selector mode that quickly and automatically takes 10 shots in low light, and selects the sharpest image.
The Smart Portrait System makes every person you photograph look good, by automatically capturing a smile, warning you when someone blinks in a picture, automatically correcting red-eye and smoothing out wrinkles and blemishes on faces. A full set of in-camera editing tools let you refine, retouch and resize photos--without a computer! There are 20 scene modes, including Pet Portrait, Night Landscape, Sports, Party/Indoor, Sunset, and lots more. The S6100 is an ideal companion--easy to get along with and always reliable.
