the cost is in making the camera smaller.

Definitely part of it. There's also nothing conventional about the cameras (increases cost too). I think the T10 can be had for about $300 nowadays.

I love the Image Stabilization (I have the T9). It cannot be overstated how important I find this feature.

1/6 second hand-held...

The "magnifying Glass" mode (super macro) is astounding...

Colors are wonderful...

Focus is fast and accurate...

High ISO is usable in a pinch (when run through Noise Ninja et al)...

Did I mention the I.S.?

Notice how I'm holding the camera! The baby bunny was all of 3 inches head to tail, and had just come out of the nest that day.

The flash is very limited however (about 12 ft max). And you'll need to correct for Redeye in every shot. You also run into the possibility of flash-illuminated Dust Bunnies if the air is dusty.

I hardly ever use flash, so that isn't a factor in my choice of cameras, but it may influence your choice.

Cheers,
R2
