Default Camera search options

I am in the process of looking for a new camera. Price is a consideration to some degree and it will be a point and shoot camera, but I have other criteria for what I want. Is there a way to put certain things in a search and then it can tell me what cameras (of all available) come with all those features? For example, uses regular batteries, burst feature, sports/kids settings, etc.

Thanks.

Trish

I'm not sure about all of these features but stores like Best Buy have ways to narrow down your selection, but it's limited to what they carry. Try Camera World.

If I may make a recommendation, check out the Olympus E-PL1. It's a point and shoot on steroids. It goes slightly beyond with DSLR features without the bulk. It also had Scene modes that are amazingly easy to master.

I would also recommend with any camera to avoid regular batteries, it would actually be a lot more economical to just get an extra battery pack because they tend to drain less. The 2nd battery would save you money in the long run.
