Hi everyone, I'm new to Steve's DigiCams and I've recently been looking to purchase a new camera. I thought I'd swing by the forums to see what other members of the community thought about the latest cameras.

The main features I am looking for are small size, full manual controls, and image stabilization. Of course, good image quality is also a must. Megapixels don't worry me too much. A wide-angle lens is a plus but not necessary.

The models I'm looking at right now are the Fujifilm FinePix F60fd, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500, and Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300 (the proprietary Memory Stick Duo is a big turn-off). What can you say about these camers and which would you recommend? And if you have another camera in mind that fits the criteria, I would love to know about it! Thanks!

I can only add a note about the Sony W-300. Steve just recently completed a review on the W-300. And here is a high ISO sample photo I was able to find when I was doing research on the W-300. This was at ISO 1250.

The Fuji F60fd isn't on the shelves yet and there are no reviews. If it's not much better than the previous version, the F50fd, you'd be better off with the Fuji F100fd, which is an excellent small camera that's particularly good in low light situations.
