    I am interested in purchasing a compact digital camera. Have no which one to buy. Am not looking to spend a lot of $. I have a Digital SLR Nikon but want to have a small back-up camera. Any preferences or advice?

    Cannon power shot is also a very good camera, that is a point and shoot in the $130 range. Break-em all. Jeff

    My wife and I both have a Nikon Coolpix L20 and like them. The display is larger than most. The only complaint I have is that it is hard to see the display in strong light. My daughter-in-law has a Canon Shur-Shot and likes it. I think it would be hard to go wrong with a mainline brand like Nikon, Canon, or Olympus.

    If you can still find a Canon G10 (not 9 or 11) there's nothing even close in any way.

    Canon SD Series. Have mine about four years and it does well. One drawback is the proprietary battery. I buy aftermarket copies for less than $5 each and they work about as well as the originals. Batteries last a pretty long time. Just which model to buy will depend on what features you want and how much you are willing to spend.

    I vote for the Nikon Coolpix. Found one at Office Depot on sale for $89.00.

    I used to go Canon, I have 2 kids, oldest has Nikon SLR 80 with lenses. She also has B&W Minolta, manual + .Younger has a SD200 8 years, back pockets it, climbs dunks, water cant kill it. The other has had 3 top end Canon P&S, they dont last,sent in repair,only good for 30 days she is artist.
    Last year went with Panasonic 28-320 or 380 I think, for her superb pictures, says same quality almost as Nikon 80. Hope it helps.
