    It is really compact and has 10 x optical zoom with 6 megapixels and image stabilization.
  2. I've seen this camera on sale for $360.

    I just tested a Panasonic FZ 18 and ended up taking it back because the picture were really disappointing. If you read reviews of Panasonics, one problem is that they have a very aggressive noise reductions but sure about the one cfvh600 recommended.
  3. Here is a link to a site with some reviews on digital cameras:

    Good luck with your purchase.
  4. I am a user of Canon Ixus 950 IS.
    It is quite all-rounded.
    It has quick response, 4x optical zoom which is good enough for a compact camera, and the optical anti-shake function.
    With 8 Mega pixels, it takes a lot of good pictures.
    The auto lighting and colour are alright.

    I know there is a newer model 960 IS, which is a upgrade of mine.
    960 IS is of 12 Mega pixel. I think it is a wise choice for you.
