A Good Quality "Export" Option?

I’ve made a few attempts to save my first "test" video in Premiere 2. Most configurations were horrible! Prior to Premiere I was using Quick Time Pro (for just basic compression and saving), H.264 codec and mp4 format. Made a couple movies in Windows Media Player that were saved as a lossless avi and then resaved in QT Pro for compression using the H.264/mp4 combination. This is the best compression/format I’ve found so far for family and friends and web viewing. The best I could do in Premiere (trying to reach a compromise with quality and file size) was exporting as
mpeg2-DVD/720×480/29.97 non drop frame/best quality/target bitrate of 6000. I just know enough about all of this to be dangerous <lol> so some of these settings are guesstimates 🙂 The 55 second movie was 40mb..yikes! Compare that to a 2 minute video, with added audio and a file size of 16mb, done in QT Pro. IMO, it looks better than the Premiere video. Problem with QT is the lack of editing features and WMM isn’t a whole lot better. My camera is the Canon S3. Movies are 640×480 30fps, avi format. Soooo, is there a combination in Premiere that renders similar or better results as H.264 codec and mp4 format?
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated,
Monica
