I am currently looking into compact digital cameras. I am not at all a professional photographer, but am looking for good quality. I will use the camera mainly on vacation (anything from bright, sunny beaches todark, oldbuildings) and when going out at night with friends (party, bars). I would like to easily cary the camera with me, so it should be as small as possible and fit in a jeans pocket. I am looking for minimum 5 megapixels, min. 3x zoom, good and large screen, fast response timesand a good battery. Any additonal features such as image stabilizer is appreciated if it is worth the money.

I narrowed down my selection to the following:

Canon Ixus SD630 (=65): no stabilizer, medium battery, generally good reviews

Sony DSC-NE: stabilizer and good battery, but prive is above average

Fuji FinePix V10: no special features, but generally good reviews

Panasonic DMC-FX01: wide angle, stabilizer, good reviews, but thickest

I deleted the Pentax A10 from downselection list as the reviews seemed to be less favorable. Please let me know if you agree.

I would appreciate any words of wisdom regarding the final choice. I you have any additional great camera, which maybe I did not consider, please let me know as well.

Thanks in advance for your help!
