    I can heartily recommend the Panasonic Lumix FX35, which is easily available at the top end of your budget.
    The intelligent-auto feature is superb.
    Just whack it on that, it adjusts everything accordingly.
    Face recognition, HD playback of video etc.etc.
    Classy looking thing too.
    Gets top marks in all the reviews I read about it too.

    Samsung NV24HD or the newer one NV100HD which I have now with touch screen, HD recording, pretty good images tbh although as Bowfer says the Panny Lumix range are also very good from all accounts, very good reviews

    I got myself a Panasonic Lumix TZ5 over the Christmas break after several friends had bought one and it really is amazing! Really would recommend. Only cost me Ł168 so not to expensive at all.

    depending on how clumsy/outdoorsy you are, have a look at the olympus "tough" range

    http://www.olympus.co.uk/consumer/29...icmp=home_8000

    they are shockproof, crushproof, waterproof, freezeproof etc.

    The TZ5 is amazing, but it was just a little too bulky for me.

    I'd always recommend a Canon, I have a few. The IXUS 90 IS is a great 10.0 megapixel camera, if you want to see some pictures taken with it I'll post em so you can see.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.
