    Any feature you're looking for?

    Sony, Canon, Fuji, Panasonic, Olympus, Samsung and Nikon do have some decentcompact cameras to offer. Why not just head down to a shop to see & feel them.

    Hi, more concern on the budget. Any of the brand above is not a problem.

    Since there is no special requirement and brand is not an issue, just get whichever you feel is good bah. There is really not much difference difference since the sensor size in the cameras are about the same.

    The Panasonic LZ8 or LZ10. Going for less then $190 but has features like leica glass, 5x zoom, manual controls, runs on aa batteries as well as can do video recording.

    It is presumably the incredibly budget version of the LX3.

    Personally I think if you want a good but (considerably) cheaper camera, it would have to be the older Canon Ixus models. If not go for Fujifilm. Cheap and good if your budget's higher, go for Panasonic LX3 -- Awesome SLR-quality shots!

    Er.. IF you want a really budget compact camera, you can try Samsung.
    From what I see, specs for specs, Samsung compact cams sometimes are cheaper than some other brands.

    How about some reading? There are plenty of articles about your topic. Two pointers:
    All about Compacts
    Prosumers: The Short and the Long

    depends what you need. usually newer models are have better noise control at higher iso. If you use mainly up to iso 400 then there isnt any clearcut difference.

    The Pany LX10 will not go wrong. While on the way to Parkway Parade...



    No HDR gimmicks. Only the shadows were pushed slightly and perspective corrected; otherwise, straight JPEG from the camera.

    Leica glass in the hands of someone who knows what he is doing.

    Here is a video clip of the LZ8 video mode on auto.
