New camera suggestions please

Hello everyone.

It has been a few years since I have been here. I currently own a Canon PowerShot S30 which has served us well, but we have been considering a new camera, being mostly enticed by the smaller size cameras available.

We use our camera basically for point and shoot applications but I have a few areas I will address where hopefully it will help gain me some expert advice.

  • Mostly simple point and shoot

  • As stated, we like the smaller cameras, easier to carry.

  • (I also like the bigger screens, but not a huge issue.)

  • I do use the macro feature

  • My house has a lot of windows and I have trouble with the S30. Ex. I have a stereo system against a wall that has windows behind it, the light from the windows makes it very hard to get a good picture.

  • The flash on the Canon sucks, which was well reported on here before I purchased it. The flash is concentrated in the middle of the picture.

  • I like the new stability feature I have heard about; I take a lot of blurry pics when I shoot in house w/o the flash, as the speed slows down.

As for price, let's leave that basically open up to say $600; I am not saying my wife will agree to that but I won't say she won't either!

Any other questions you need to help me, feel free to ask.

Thanks for your help. Brian
