    Im looking to buy a new Digital Camera this week. But, Im looking at a point and shoot. Something to carry with me, when I don't feel like packing around my D80 and other equipment. I still want CLEAR, nice pictures. And I want the digital camera to be " Sturdy ", I hate those small cameras that are like the size of a cigarette pack. Any recommendations or opinions? Probably will shoot alot of outdoor pictures, and some indoor shots ( From like Christmas family gatherings and such )

    I went through several for my wife until landing with a Nikon Cool Pix. They maintain quality through all their models.
    The Pentax performed well enough except it was a battery hog. Three or four pictures and two more AAs were shot.
    Go with Nikon.

    Canon S90 if you're a serious shooter. Has all the important stuff easy to access in the form of knobs/dials. Canon SD780 if you want something barely noticable. Canon is the way to go. I have some examples on my website as well as links to these items. Check it out in my sig.
