I bought a tiny little Canon Digital Ixus 80 for my wife the other day and I have to say that despite its size, it does do a very good job of taking a picture. I'm not a photographer and don't profess to be, nor does a professional snapper user a compact but there are times when it is useful to have one.
Later this year I will get myself a Canon powerhot g10 which is currently getting good reviews across the tinterweb. I used a g9 and was suitably impressed so in theory this one should be great as most reviews I have read say it beats the g9 hands down.
