    You can consider the Sony H20 for good zoom as well. One of my firends, who is also a lady just set her mind in getting this cam too.

    Not very big, I think it's about the same size as the Samsung or slightly smaller but thicker due to the lens. It feels comfortable in my friend's small hands.

    What kind of manual adjusting are you looking for?

    Hi Princess-Piggy.
    Welcome to Clubsnap!

    I also wish for a camera that can zoom and good lighting and is light and can fit into my bag easily. Sad to say, you can't really have your cake and eat it too.

    I see you type 'events' and 'bad lighting', and I'm thinking nightclub... correct me if I'm wrong.
    The flash from pocket cameras is usually weak, and pointing forward, so you'll get images of people who look like deer that have been caught in the headlights. It's pretty hard to avoid. The newer pocket cameras probably allow you to bump up the sensitivity of the image sensor, and then apply heavy noise reduction to produce an acceptable image.

    There are lots of limitations with pocket cameras. Technology keeps making them better though.

    Please do not go to Courts. Try shops like MS Color instead.

    Some camera dealers offer 0% interest with certain credit cards. Even after factoring in the rates, the prices will still be lower than what Courts can offer.

    Compacts generally don't do well in low light due to their smaller sensors. If you can, go for the Panasonic LX3. Or wait for the Canon Powershot SD980 to start selling.

    Then get a LX3 or Canon S90IS or the TZ7 or the Fujifilm 70EXR

    All are decent to good performers in low light considering their sensor sizes.

    The LX3 or S90 will out perform the TZ7 in low light. The TZ7 have a much smaller sensor and slower lens.

    really worried about recommending a camera, because eventually the results might still be disappointing. Low-light situation + hand-holding + no possibility for external flash... I think even my DSLR might struggle in that situation... So if I recommend Panasonic LX3, which I think is one of the better compact cameras out there, and the results are still not to expectation, then how? Would you feel like it's $700 down the drain?

    My friend just bought her Sony H20 today and I had a chance to play with her new cam for a while. It's a very easy to use cam and like you my friend wants a good zoom range hence decided to try this cam. One thing to note is that the LCD looks very noisy but when you review the pictures, it's very sharp and cannot see the noise. Not sure why also. Anyway my friend is happy with it.
