Hi everyone,

I am looking to get a new P&S compact camera under $600 .of course cheaper better lah.
current camera coolpix 995 (bought in 2002) strong & rugged.
Would like to get a new camera, smaller in size, tough and good for travelling use.
Don't mind 8-9m pixel, I guess 5m is good enough.
Please recommend a range of such P&S, thanks for your great help.

U want smaller size, and good for travelling, then I can suggest Panasonic FX9 (abt $600), the unique feature is it has image stabilizer, which will reduce handshake problem.

There is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS2 coming out maybe middle of March, $300++ only. 5.0mp, Mega O.I.S (which means image stabiliser).
