Hello...welcome.

It depends on your budget & usage actually. For Panasonic I would recommend the LX3 which has gotten a lot of very good feedback. Otherwise, the Sony cams are excellent cams.

err....budget budget budget. depends what u use it for also. normal candid photography ie: birthdays clubbing etc...or do you wanna move into nitpicking at sharp pictures, lighting control etc...

for the former id recommend the cannon. great colours cool functions. i dont believe in paying more for IS and 28mm wide lense for this, cause otherwise id whip out my dslr.

for the latter the lx3 of course. i know many photo enthusiasts who hail praises about it. leica glass. i never believed until i saw it with my own eyes. if im not wrong, its an f2! with iso 6400. what a compact!

im not too sure about a fuji. i played with one once sometime ago. didnt like the interface!

Lumix LX3 = Sharp, but lousy in noise. Lots of manual control, so allows more creative shots. Does RAW too... if you like to photoshop... Lecia and F2... thats pretty neat to have on a P&S. But its zoom is as good as none. but food shots should be ok for you.

Canon IXUS i assume? heard good things about the 840, but i'm not a fan of canon... but its not a bad camera.

Fuji = Great for night shots (FD50, FD31 are great but i believe they are out of production already) Still their SUPER CCD is legendary. Please don't get any other that are just CCD. must get SUPER CCD. Basically you can go up to ISO 400 without much problem. The rest are pretty noisy. the FD31 can go to 3200 and produce a pretty decent shot with their neat function.

If i love to take food and the are the 3 choices i'll grab the lumix... but its a little costly...

canon Isus 870 is good. Alan photo selling at 499 with freebies.
Fuji is made in China.

Thanks for all de advice...

I heard from my fren about a new Lumix TS1 I find is pretty cool and nice. It is shockproof and waterproof nice picture taken too and is slim but the price is not out yet. My fren say it will be around 600plus if it is so than I will save up to get this.

LX3 is well worth it if you can stretch your budget a bit more...
else might look at fuji... the F50fd is good....
