    What is your budget? If it's under $200, then thee Canon Powershot SD1000, if its under $300, the Canon Powershot SD870.

    My advise is to get a manual 35mm camera and learn the 'science' of phototgraphy. That is, learn what shutter speeds do, learn what aperture settings do, understand the range of light. If you never progress beyond a point and shoot that does all the thinking for you, you will never have the knowledge to understand what went wrong, not understand difficult lighting conditions, not understand how to be creative.
