For point & shoot cameras, I only trust Canon and Sony. I've been using Sony DSC-W1 for about a year. It's a good point & shoot digi-cam, but I guess it's kinda outdated now. I heard Sony's new Cyber-Shot lines are pretty good too... W5, W7, T33, T7.

Btw, do a research before buying... www.dpreview.com

Sony gets my vote too. I've had a cybershot dscp72 for nearly two years now and it's great. If you're not planning on needing to produce poster sized prints a 3 megapixel camera is going to be enough resolution for you. I can produce super crisp 8x10's and 11x17's with it, plus it shoots video with sound at 640x480 resolution... enough to fill your tv screen. Nice.

The cybershot is a good size too, but my next camera purchase, probably not for at least two years, will be smaller... even more pocketable. I'd value portability above all else nowadays.

The only downside to Sony's is that you need their proprietary Memory Stick as well, though other companies (Lexar, Sandisk) make great, cheaper alternatives too.

No need to spend much on one... they're all pretty good if you stick with a known reliable brand name.

canon g6 is a nice camera, US$409 at dell

Quote:
Bottom line - the PowerShot G6 is an excellent camera. Definitely one that I would recommend without hesitation. With great image quality, powerful features, and robust performance it's sure to please most every user. This is a camera that I am sure is going to be carried by enthusiasts and pros when they leave the bulky dSLR equipment behind. The 7-megapixel images yield more than enough resolution to make stunning 13x19-inch prints.

or, if the A510 is your bailywick, as recommended above, it's also on sale for US$139, same place (blinkage)

This is what I have too...great camera. You can find it for $199.99 at most places.

Here's an example of a photo I took with the A510 without a tripod:


Here is a photo my friend took with his powershot. When I saw these series of photos (there are plenty more), I was sold on the power shot.

FujiFilm is also pretty good. I have the S3100 and a friend of mine has a S7000. And I like the quality I've gotten from mine.

I own the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P93 and it's been a good camera. I'm sure it could be a great camera if anyone but my dumbass were taking the pics but oh well. haha Even as terrible as I am with cameras it still takes good pics. I'll try to link a pic here so you can see it as well. Keep in mind though, I suck with the camera.
