    I need a new point and shoot camera

    I recently gave my Sony N1 to my brother and I need to replace it with another one... I have been eyeing the Canon G10 and I love it except the size and non touch screen LCD. Can anyone make any other recommendations?

    Thanks,

    I was checking that camera along with the Panasonic Lumix LX3. I ended up spending $$$ for a Leica delux 4 b/c the Lumix was just sold out everywhere...crazy demand.

    I think all 3 are awesome.

    I'm pretty happy with my Fujifilm Z33. No touchscreen and the optics and sensor aren't as good as the G10, but it's smaller and waterproof Great for when it just isn't practical/safe to lug the DSLR around.

    I have a Canon Ixus 980 which I use when not carrying around my Nikon kit. Very good all round camera.

    it's hard to beat Canon when it comes to p&s cameras. I am a Nikon SLR shooter, but I always buy the Canon for my small, carry cameras. They have never disappointed me!

    Hello,

    I noticed your post and thought I would chime in, at this time I would go for the Panasonic DMC Lx3, I recommend checking out this website for additonal info on the LX3 and for that matter any other camera model or brand made.

    http://www.dpreview.com/

    Happy hunting, if you check out the camera database and then go from there,

    best to ya,
    Dan

    Before you make your decision or even if you have already bought, maybe you would consider a Fuji F200EXR? I bought one recently and was blown away! Though no touch screen or eye view, but the quality of the pics it produced, I cannot ask for more from a Point and Shoot camera. I had considered the Panasonic LX3 too, but the price is almost 1.5+ times more than the F200EXR. And the low noise of the LX3, IMHO, is a few level below the Fuji's.

    Here are some shots of low light:
    Night scene with tripod & synchronized flash fired. (But camera is on parapet not tripod)


    Full auto mode:


    Here is a link of my post in other forum:

    All I can conclude is that it is "foolproof" camera, anyone one can shoot good pics with it. The low noise pics produced is a super plus plus points! The color is so vibrant for most of the modes!
