My camera has died

My camera is broken, it seems. I discovered this last Sunday, when I tried to take pictures at the protest. Damn. So now I need to seek for a replacement.

My Kodak DX-3600 had some features I really liked, specifically, it took CompactFlash formfactor memory, it took AA formfactor batteries, and it had a optical zoom and optical macro. I didn't care for the plastic body and the wasteful size (most of the interior is just empty place, instead of making it as small as possible.)

It looks like most cameras now want to use one of the more expensive more proprietary memory formats, and to use their own proprietary batteries.
