    Olympus XZ1 and Panasonic LX5 are pretty slim.
    Canon Powershot S100 is pretty good with f2 lens, but recently there are issues with some production QC. If you can get a second hand Canon S95 will be good.

    i believe you already know all these since you have been doing some research.

    Sony DSC RX100 Hands-on Preview: Digital Photography Review

    Aperture range
    Sony DSC-RX100 F1.8-4.9 i cannot find this in canon singapore website Sony Cyber-shot & Digital Still Camera : Sony Singapore : Sony Singapore
    Canon G1 X F2.8-5.8 this is powershot series
    Olympus XZ-1 F1.8-2.5
    Canon S100 F2.0-5.9 this one is small.

    LX3 have shuttery priority and Aperture priority.

    i think LX7 should have too but don't what will be the price like.

    With interchangeable lens option will consider bulky for my wife to use.


    for me personally i will prefer to use Nikon DSLR D7000
    You know what? if the slim EPM1 is considered bulky, then your wife will be better off using an iPhone or Nokia .... guarantee very slim.

    Of course you can't find it on the Canon website. It's a Sony.

    even if the compact camera have manual control, they will be hard to navigate

    when the kids are running around, your wife may not have the time or patience to change the settings, so she might end up using the auto mode

    and like Reportage said, setting the shutter speed to 1/250 to freeze the motion may get you underexposed shots(especially indoors)
    while the wide f1.8 aperture might give problems too

    for those people without much technical knowledge, a simple compact with flash will do the job

    cheapest option is probably duct tape and/or rope. Once they are held in place, it's easy to take photos of kids with a simple camera
    hehehehe just kidding.


    TS, you're asking for a camera that performs like a DSLR, yet is as small as say a Lumix LX5. hmmmmm tough customer to satisfy.
    Probably get the compact camera with the largest aperture lens you can lay your hands on. Should give you (or your wife, rather) the best chance of capturing a well-exposed, non-blurry photo of your kids.
    Exploring! :)

    For prosumer compact camera if i am not wrong price range is between 800 to 1000+. As long as it has a flash and wide aperture f1.8 and iso setting up to 1600. I think that is all you need.Most prosumer compact should be within these specs.


    But take note for good image quality always shoot between iso100 to iso 400. I know dslr can set its iso range for auto mode not sure whether the compact have it or not do try it during buying it

    Seriously speaking, we don't really know what you don't like. It will be good if you short-list a few models yourself and post the models here for the experts to help you.

    Have you tried the Nikon J1? It is light and compact, very good picture quality (esp outdoor), very fast AF, simple to operate, continuous shooting mode, can take slow motion video of your kids even if they are hyperactive, snap picture while in video mode. And has white and pink which your wife will like. I am using one and I like it a lot.

    i'm a canon fan, so my opinion would be their powershot S100. Its with f2 lens. should be fast enough for that price yo're paying.

    my 2 cents worth.

    F1 photographers, London Olympic Games photographers, safari photographers on the Serengeti shooting cheetas ..... and your wife..... are looking for the same camera

    The some of the newer cameras on the market today (Samsung Olympus Panasonic to name a few) have subject tracking features which you might find useful

    Some of the newer cameras with touch-screen shutters will allow your wife to shoot your kids by just touching the lcd screen .... much like an iphone/android game .... could be fun for her

    Also another thing is shutter lag ..... how long it takes for the camera to release the shutter from the moment you press on the shutter release button .... DSLRs usually have negligible shutter lag while pocket cameras do have a little of this
