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

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.

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/productcategory/cybershot-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 ..
