    My wife and I have a Canon Powershot A540. We've had it for a year now. It's a nice camera, just another point-n-shoot.

    So what camera(s) do you use?

    For a point n shoot the Canon Powershot series are nice. Atleast I think so. Problem is adjusting it for night-time shoots atleast with the A540. I'm still learning the camera.

    Any pictures? I would like to see the quality. I've heard some good things about Fuji just haven't looked into it.

    I've got a Canon G7 that I'm really happy with, and getting to know it pretty well.

    I used to run a really nice thousand-dollar Olympus with huge glass.
    Couldn't take a decent picture to save it's life.
    Up on the 'bay it went.

    Spent less than $180 on a Panasonic DMC-LZ5.
    ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!

    I'm not taking any magazine cover shots, so I don't need a 52 megapixel camera. I need maybe 3-5, max.

    The Panasonic has O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization). It's about 985x better than any of the digital stabilizations out there. It's near impossible to take a blurry, out-of-focus picture.
    I tested out dozens of cameras at BestBuy, CircuitCity, SamsClub, WalMart and CompUSA (when they had stores). The Panasonic won the image stabilization contest, hands down.

    Small enough to fit in your pocket, "normal" memory cards (SD), and "normal" batteries (AA).

    It's so nice, I'm going to pick up 2 more now that they're under $100 ea.
