I love my Nikon Coolpix 995. You can take a perfectly enormous photo
with it, or a lot of little ones, and resolutions rival proper film. 
About a grand is what you'd be spending. And you'd want more batteries
and more "film" so the price edges up. But oh, the little thing makes me
so happy. And my husband can use it too; he is totally unmechanical and
children laugh at him in the street, but he can point and shoot. 
Instant gratification, how lovely.
