    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 £168 so not to expensive at all.

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

    We got a Panasonic TZ5 - really good camera - 10 x optical zoom, image stabilisation, face recognition, good quality as well.....as stated above, teh Intelligent Auto is very good !
    We paid £200 that included a 3 year parts warranty - go on push the boat out a little bit more........got a 4GB SDHC card and case from e-bay pretty cheap, and a spare battery for about a tenner.

    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.
