    I know that this comes up often but I really need help narrowing my search. I'm in the market for a digi point and shoot. These are the features most important to me:

    Long battery life
    Macro function
    High resolution (megapixels)
    Waterproof/durable
    Wide angle (28mm) with decent zoom (200mm would be nice)
    Compact

    Your input is GREATLY appreciated!
    Sorry to beat the dead horse.

    i have a pentax optio W30 that has held up very well on the river. It is waterproof, and will even take underwater photos. If I were looking to buy one, I'd be real happy with the newer model with more pixels.
