Default Advice Needed Please

I'm looking for a little camera to keep in my handbag, what would you recommend i buy?
I am asking before parting with my money as i don't want to buy the wrong thing.
All advice gratefully appreciated.

eysha, you may have better response over in the "what camera should I get" section. I think most of us here are with a Panny and not too familiar with with a pocket camera.

Eysha, I was in need of a wide angle camera to carry with me at all times, I saw the Panasonic S 1, it was cheap, but had a good write up, so I got one, it is very simple and produces excellent photos, and the best part is it is no bigger than a packet of cigarettes. I call it my little Gem.

I shot this tonight just before dark, intelligent auto mode, which turned out to be ISO 800, F4, 1/20 second, Damm good for hand held in bad light. the shot is a memorial wall flood lit.

After reading a load of reviews on Steve's i decided on a ZS7/TZ10 but it must be out of date now as i cannot find one.
What is the next best one that is similar/the same as this one please?
