    The last time I suggested a Canon camera, I was jumped on.

    I personally love Canon and have an older PAS (A80) and a Digital Rebel XT. I love them both.

    I just got a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 a month ago and have been very happy with it.

    It is the ONLY pocket size camera with a 10x optical zoom - that's what sold me on it. It is 7.2 MP and also has image stabilization. And sports a 28mm wide-angle Leica lense.

    Can be had for $280. You also need to purchase a memory card (high speed if you want to take advantage of burst mode) as it doesn't come with one.

    It's a little larger and heavier than most pocket point-and-shoot cameras, but then what do you expect when you pack in a lense with the 10x zoom?

    Canon +1

    I just picked up the SD870is this week, been looking at getting a P&S camera for a few years now to replace my old Nikon Coolpix 995 which is too big to do anything casual with.
    Check out the Canon site too but the minor specs of the SD870is is 8mp, 3.8 zoom, 3" lcd screen and can fit in a pants pocket easily.

    I'll get a Nikon DSLR if I need more powerful features but for a P&S Canon is king.

    i would also go with a Canon. But i recommend the "A" series over the "SD" series. The "A" series use AA batteries and if you are out and about it would be easier to replace the batteries than to have to charge the proprietary one.

    This is the camera that my dad is getting me for Xmas. The 10x optical zoom is what sold me too.

    I have the Casio Exilim, the super skinny one. I mainly got it for that reason, so I can carry it around everywhere, but the lens doesn't always go back in when i go to turn it off -- happened after about 2 years of use. Other than that, the Casio doesnt seem to take the clearest pics. Many times I'd have to retake or deal with blurry pictures for no reason sometimes. That...or I had no idea what I was doing, but I do have a clue.

    EDIT: Found the Panasonic cheapest on amazon.com...I think $40 cheaper than Circuit City and Best Buy.

    One of the nice things about the Canon, especially the Elph, is that because it is their most "visible" line of cameras (most likely to go to events and be passed around, so a lot of people see it), they are very serious about repairing, or if they can't repair, upgrade, in an extremely fast and pretty cheap (for out of warranty repairs) manor. You know you are never more than $100 and three days from getting a replacement if something goes wrong.

    I agree about the A series and the convenience of using the AA batteries while traveling. The new A720 IS is an excellent camera.... great color... 6x zoom... image stabilization. I have owned four A series cameras and loved each of them.
