I am looking for a compact ( not SLR) digital camera, for mainly indoor use.

It should have good wide angle, and potentially a decent flash to go with it.

What would you recommend?

Thank you for your advice...

You may want to take a look at the Kodak P-880 which has a good built-in flash and can mount an external flash on the included hot shoe. Another possibility would be the Nikon 8400, if you can find one.

Thank you for the advice. The P-880 looks great- but I am really hoping to find a smaller one ( as compact as possible).

Any other out there?

Thank you all again for your comments!

Miklos, how 'bout the Canon S80?

The Canon S-80, Panasonic FX01 and the Sony S-600, which has a 31mm lens and a low price of just $(US) 180, and is quite small, are your choices.
