My wife needs a new compact camera for convenient photos & quick snaps. Previously she had a very slim 6Mp Casio S600, which performed very well until the day it died. Any suggestions for what is currently topping the compact charts?
Only interested in something that takes SD cards (no Olympus). We have a SLR for being creative, but my wife is still keen to keep some basic control even in a compact. A good zoom and decent response to dark conditions would also be nice. Waterproofing not necessary, I have a Pentax for that and my wife hates it!
