At the moment I have a Sony DSC P10 but fancy something newer, slimmer and with a much bigger LCD screen. I want something fast as it seems to take an age to be ready for the next shot, especially with the flash. And my indoor shots aren't great. I use a camera as a point and shoot to capture my kids' moments and also want a good video mode that I can watch on TV.

I've been looking at the Sony T30, Kodak V610 and 705 and even the Xacti C6? Would any of these be suitable or something from the Canon range? Also seen the new N2 and T50 but not sure the touchscreen is such a good idea.

I suppose I really want a very good camera/camcorder hybrid but not sure if one has been invented yet.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

The kodak v610 is a very nice camera that you would be happy with. Most small cameras are slower on recharging the flash because of the smaller batteries that have to power the flash back up. I don't know if they've done much with it since this summer, but the Sony's are quick on lag and slow from shot to shot. I wish they would get rid of their memory sticks and go with the much faster SD cards. The only thing I don't like about the Canons are that they dont have scene modes for assistance that is needed for most shooters, and they are almost too small.

Thanks for the reply. I didn't know that about the Canon's so that's helped me with my decision.

I have always had good luck with Sony Cybershots, I have a P73 and a F828,I always buy the two top of my choice and use the both to compair then take the one I don't like back to the store for a refund.
