    Hello,

    I am looking to buy a smallish point and shoot camera for about $200 and I was wondering if anyone could help advise me on a good one to get? There are five that I am currently looking at and it would be great if someone could tell me which is the best or point me towards another one that is better.

    Samsung
    Fuji
    Canon
    Nikon
    Sony

    Thanks!

    My young daughter has a Fujifilm XP : 5x optical zoom, video, non extending lens, large view screen, shock-dust-water-freeze proof. About $150 at the right place at the right time. She has it with her all the time and is using it a lot, which is the whole point of a P&S.

    I have a S90 and I love the quality of the P&S. The Lumix LX-5 just came out and it looks like a very good camera too!

    I have always loved the image quality on Sony's P+S's. All of my pics on this forum were taken with a Sony P+S because I don't have DSLR yet. You can get a used one for around $200, the H20 that is, and mine easily fits in my jeans pocket. Just giving my thoughts.
