    My wife prefers one with image stabilizer easy to use cause she isn't a IT fanatic so I want to get some easy to use for her. Any brands like canon or panasonic can recommend? Thank you

    If you can stretch your budget a bit IXUS 300 ($499) is a good performer

    see review http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/cano...0is/page10.asp

    too bad no more the Panasonic LZ8 or LZ10 promo at $140-ish. An incredible bargain for a pns with manual functions and runs on AA.

    dont think will see such a sale like it ever again.

    Powershot series. If you have budget, then S95.

    Would recommend Canon 300 HS. very intelligent auto mode. very responsive for a point and shoot. brilliant colours. very good low light capability. good 2 stop IS capability. able to do good macro shots.

    I think ur wife will like something for the Sony cybershot series, somehow i just feel more targeted at ladies. check out the website for a good range listed suggested Price to suit ur budget http://www.sony.com.sg/productcatego...digital-camera

    But then I really love canon IXUS cameras, u can't go wrong with them. I have one IXUS 60 from 5 yrs back still working fine.

    The IXUS 1000 HS looks pretty good as well. The slim factor will be a plus for my wife. The convenient 10x zoom is another..

    I might just be getting one ..
