Sorry guys I know this sort of question comes up lots but can I have some advice on the best P&S at the moment.

I need a camera for taking pics of my kids and my main priority is image quality.It will be a mixture of indoor / outdoor shots with more spontaneous type photos than formally posed ones. I'm no photographer so it will be mainly auto setting although I may like to get into being a bit more creative at a latter stage (wouldn't rate this as a priority though)

I'm considering the following cameras

Canon A80 - good reviews, flip out lcd could be useful, manual control if needed

Canon Ixus 500 (S500) - small so could carry it all the time

Sony DSC-V1 - faster than the others so better for 'grabbing that moment'

Any comments on these or suggestions for other cameras (£300 max) would be very helpful.

A80 vs V1

Much less image noise.

Much better battery life (NiMH).

Cheaper batteries (NiMH).

A little smaller.

Cheaper memory.
