Default Digital Camera?

I need a new digital camera after my old one kicked the bucket. Luckily, my grandmother just gave me $500 (it was supposed to be for Christmas, but we couldn't get to her house in Maryland until last weekend), so...I'm looking for a relatively good camera in the $100-$250 range that can fit in a pocket (ultracompact) and has at least a 4X zoom lens and image stabilization, and maybe face recognition and some other gizmos, and that looks cool. Any ideas?

Such a camera doesn't exist. Though may I reccomend the Nikon Coolpix L11? It is quite close to what you want.

So long as you don't want the other fancy gizmos, you can probably find sometihng.

I sprung for a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ8, which, along with several other cameras I looked at, does fit all those requirements, and in fact exceeds many of them. It has face recognition, optical image stabilization, a Leica lens with 5x optical zoom, manual exposure controls (which was something else I wanted), looks very cool, and only cost about $150. http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-e...00000000005702
