my little old faithful Panasonic Lumix "handbag/pocket" camera has been limping along for awhile, struggling to stay alive, so I recently bit the bullet and replaced it, using some credit card points I had saved up.
After researching what was on offer, and reading the reviews on each of them, I settled on a Canon IXUS 220HS.
First impression are that its SMALL (not much bigger than my mobile phone) and sturdy, with few buttons on the outside, which at this point is a pain, as I have to go through menus when I want to change something (it has quite a few options for a little point and shoot) and can't remember where I saw what.
Picture quality seems fantastic! and focus is brilliant. Great little zoom, with image stabilisation(I can't find where I saw that but know it has it) Here are some examples.....
