    I think the best point and shoot camera for the novice is the fujifilm Z5fd. Cost in the region of $400.

    Generally, i'm looking for a small, stylish looking compact cam with:
    i) image stabilisation
    ii) good battery life
    iii) good image quality
    iv) wide lens prefered
    v) low noise in high ISO/ good for low light shooting conditions
    vi) some manual controls would be a plus
    vii) relatively good macro ability

    Please advise!
    Actually there is no compact camera that meets all your requirements.
    Always buy an extra battery, 3rd party ones are rather cheap. You never know when your battery will run out & lose capturing all those moments & scenery for the rest of the day.

    Below are what my personal opinions. Not familiar with other cameras

    a review on it here..
    Cons: Significant noise in high ISO
    Pros: image stabilisation, good image quality, wide lens

    Pros: Acceptable noise in high ISO, image stabilisation, great image quality, wide lens

    FX-01/30
    Cons: Significant noise in high ISO
    Pros: image stabilisation, good image quality, wide lens

    Heard ricoh caplio r4 is good, but I am not sure.
    Personally I will go for LX2
