At least two of us (in SATLUG) have the Canon PowerShot A520. USB
connection, standard SD card, works with regular Debian desktop software, no
hassles. It has a ton of program features I thought I would use, but so far
I seldom deviate from full auto mode.

I would spend some time thinking about how the camera is going to be used.
That once-in-a-lifetime trip up the Sepik River is a lot tougher on
electronics than an afternoon at Lost Maples. Megapixels may count far less
than battery life when you're far from Wal*Mart.  --Don


Be well - or at least have interesting symptoms!
