Small, Fast, Neat, Stable, family camera recomendation?

I am trying to get a new camera, my old one is a Casio Exilim but is death.
I learned what we need our next family camera.
1. Fast shooting, and minimum shutter lag time.
2. Size (smallest possible)
2. Clean and acceptable pictures
3. Stability or/and anti-shake
4. Use of SD card
5. Budget < 400$
Please advice.

Sony DSC-WX5

1. Should have as little shutter lag as the model it replaces, the WX1, making it one of the fastest compacts available

2. 3.6" x 2.0" x 0.8"

3. Sample gallery here:

4. Uses real, optical image stabilization; a 5x zoom, 24-120mm lens

5. Accepts SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards (and Sony Memory Sticks as well)

6. Under $300

Thank you I haven't looked at this, I will do it now.
Any other suggestion in case I am not convinced, I am not a very good fan of Sony.
Thanks again

Canon S95

The S95 is considered one of the best compacts in terms of image quality, but Canons in general are not particularly fast. Its advantages though are many, including a larger imaging sensor and a larger aperture lens for better low light performance. It also has semi and full manual controls. A full review is here:
