Sub-£300 Digital Cameras

The features I'm looking for:
  • Compact (light and slim)
  • High quality optics
  • Good at close-up shots (sub-10cm)
  • Tough construction
  • High number of shots per battery charge
  • Fast to turn on (ie, low lag before it's ready to take a picture)
  • At least 5Mpixel but higher isn't important
  • Supports continuous movie collection at 640x480, 30fps
  • Simple docking station for downloading and recharging
  • Difficult to accidentally turn on
  • Canon IXUS 900 Ti - titanium body, 10Mpix, and also does 1024x768 movies @15fps for 3 minutes. Good review here.
  • Kodak EasyShare C743
  • Nikon Coolpix 7900 - aluminium body Good review here.
  • Nikon Coolpix P4 - has time-lag movie feature. Good review here.
  • Pentax Optio M20
