Hi, sorry, but I have another one of those which is the best camera questions. I am looking for a good point and shoot camera that's pretty much good at everything. I have been researching online and talking to sales people in camera stores and I am somewhat lost in all of the data. The camera will primarily be used at family gatherings and for travel. The types of pictures I mostly take are obviously family members, nature, scenery, wildlife and underwater shots. (SCUBA).

So what I was looking for was a camera that was relatively fast, good in low light, with a good zoom and fairly good wide angle lens. I am also looking for a camera that is relatively small. Oh and there must be a underwater case available for the camera.

I currently have 4 models on my short list: the Sony Cybershot W170, Canon 880IS, Olympus Styles 1010, and Fuji Finepix f100fd.

So my questions are

- Any of those stand out above the others?

- Any of those should take off my list?

- Should I consider any other camera?

Thank you in advance for any comments you may have.

You may well find that your wildlife and your SCUBA requirments are conflicting.

The SD-880 just received the top award in a comparison of compact p & s cameras.
