    It is your money dude. You have to decide which camera you should buy. We cannot make your decisions for you...

    SOrry, just realized you are not a dude, but a dudette.

    But still, you need to get what you want and what you like. You cannot live your life for others.

    +1, Coolthought. Those 3 sites are very helpful. I almost made my purchase this evening for a Sony W350 as I lost my Lumix FP8 recently. The Panasonic Lumix TZ10 looks good in specs.

    the cheapest place may not be the best shop for you to go . . . you may end up buying other things as well . . .

    get from one of those reputated shops which give reasonable price (lower than the RRP; Recommended Retailed Price) . . . you can find them at the Price Guide Sub Forum . . .
    Shot more cos digital is FREE !!!

    These are a few of the more recent compact review done by our fellow csers with more details and closer look at the ability and limitation of the reviewed camera.

    I recommend ixus 300 HS around $334 without freebies. You can get the memory card, screen protector and pouch separately, price is still below 400 in total.

    Cheap and good, the best place is BnS.

    Please note, cheap does not usually go hand in hand with quality. Unless you are willing to go for old technology. Some older cams, still take awesome pictures by today's standard. You may want to check out the Canon G9, or even the older Lumix LX3.
