I know this has been discussed quite a bit but I was wondering if you can give me some recommendations for p&s camra with a good IQ, sharpness and possible image stabilizator for my wife. She will most likely just shoot on Auto or P but the image quality is very important for her. I don't mind spending a bit more money for a good camera. I was looking at Canon G7/9 but have read that in auto mode the pictures are not that great. Same about Canon 5Si. Any other cameras you would recommend?

Tia-

The Canon G-7, G-9, and S-5 seem to do just fine in P, or Programed Auto Mode You are correct/wise to stay away from the Auto Mode. The G-7 is now well priced with the new G-9 now on the market, and it is an excellent Ppoint & Shooter.

Mato-

See my post in the "Camera for Children" Folder. The Sony H-5 is another camera that your wife might like. It has IS, 12X Optical Zoom, an Auto Mode, as well as aP for Programed Auto Mode. It is quite a good camera and can be had on E-Bay at a rather attractive price.
