Canon S95 for P&S with f/2.0 lens on wide end...I don't think the HS10 can handle it, but I never tried it in that kind of setting, it doesn't focus well without good light...

realistically for good nightclub shots you want a camera you can use on manual settings

you need a longish exposure so the bakground isn't completely black then you need a flash to light and freeze the action on the people you shooting - backgrouns will be blurred but is a cool look - also autofocus is gonna be pretty useless so you'll want to simply set manual focus for an aprox distance you shooting you subjects from - give yourself a reasonble smaller aperture so there is enough dof of feild that focus isn't critical

not sure what p&s will let you manual focus but think pretty much all entry level dslr should be upto the job
