This time of year, many people are still waiting on reviews of the cameras that have just came out. There are a few, but many more on the way. If it was me, I would go with the Canon digital Elphs. I have not seen a bad, below average, or average review of the Elphs. Sony makes some really good ultra-compact cameras, but they have had some flops also. The SD850IS did a very good job in the review I read.
I'm somewhat tech savvy, but, have not shopped for a digital camera since my Canon S400. Hopefully, you all can help. I'm looking for a point-n-click, about 8-10MP, Image Stabilizer, decent sized LCD, takes good pictures, and, is as compact as possible (traveling overseas). I've spoken to many people and everyone says something different. First it was the Sony T300, then the Canon 1100, then the Canon 950, then the Nikon S600. I heard the Sony T300 has great options, but, takes awful pictures. The Nikon is good and compact, but, the LCD and pictures are only decent. I'm confused. I' willing to spend up to $350 (maybe$400) as long as I don't have to worry about it becoming archaic in 2 years. Thanks for any help you can offer.
