    Hi all!

    I'm looking for a new compact digital camera and i will probably go for one of the following. Could you please advise me on which I should prefer?
    Thank you in advance!

    1.Canon Ixus 860 IS (Canon PowerShot SD870 IS)
    2.Canon Ixus 870 IS (Canon PowerShot SD880 IS)
    2.Panasonic DMC-FX37
    3.Sony CyberShot DSC-W210

    Probably the 2nd one is the successor of the 1st one but does it worth it value? What about the others?
    Thank you!

    I'm gonna use it for everyday use. I'm not really interested in manual settings, mostly point and shoot. Good image quality and stabilization is a plus. Finally, I'm gonna shoot on moving objects.
    Thank you!

    Just everyday stuff, all of those will be fine. Try them out and see which one you like the most. Fast-moving objects are really the realm of good glass on a fast DSLR though, and some solid knowledge in photography.

    I have three of them. ALL three are great, but different. If I had to cut them down to one, I would keep the G9

    Why the G9 over the G10?
