New Pocket Camera for less than 200

I have a Canon SLR and I need a new pocket camera. I'd like something fast and less or around $200. I have been thinking about the Canon sd780 and the SD 1200. I am open to suggestions. This is just for causual use but I do have kids.

Either camera would be a good choice for around $200.

If you have been using a SLR or DSLR camera for very long, you are going to miss having manual controls so that you can select the shutter speed and aperture settings.

canon SD 1200 looks more promising.
