    Going down to the shop and have a feel is the best way to decide.
    espcially the 'built' n 'Menu' navigations.

    be sure to think over the kind of photography you're most likely to use it for, if you're going to take lots of indoor or night shots, you may also want to consider finepix f11

    Actually quite a few factors to look at.
    Nikon S6 - periscope lens good or not ?
    Olympus got new one - mju 720 shock proof, watherproof and idiot proof (I think)
    Ixus always look cool, girls like them
    Exilim Z600 - if this new model - got good antishake feature. But low light not so good.

    I used campact camera too and must tell you better choose one with very small shutter lag and good low light ability, like can shoot at ISO 800 with very minmum noise. You will need high ISO speed to reduce handshake spoiling the shot and save using flash which drain the battery.

    Some camera very slow when flash is turn on. So smaller shutter lag must also be extended to flash mode.

    Casio give near instantaneos reviews of recorded shots. Love this features when you browsing to see what you want to delete to free spaces. Save time.

    Ok another very important feature, how fast can the camera ready itself for your next shot.
    That is, it must write very fast. Don't be stingy on memeory card get the fastest available for the camera. If fastest and second fastest has negligible difference then smart smart get the second fastest if it save money.

    I like big LCD, don't know about you. Images showing on the LCD should not be jerky when you pan the camera.

    Having say so much, one good model to consider is F11. Heard price had dropped.

    Hope above help.
