Default replacing casio ex-z750

Can you recommend a replacement for the casio ex-z750 digital camera i had for many years that died. I bought and tried a newer casio from costco but didn't like it at all. Now I don't know what to do.

well,

what are you looking for in a camera? what features are most important to you? what kinds of shots do you typically shoot?

what is your budget?

i would like another easy to use camera. When i was in Panama, the camera started to sizzle. Is it worth fixing?

i doubt it is worth fixing.

there are a lot of camera's that can do vacation and family shots quite well. are you looking for a big zoom, or a small size?

some good models that are often recommended, and vary in size, etc.

Panasonics ZS1/ZR1
Canon SX200is/Sx120is/980IS
Sony H20
Samsung TL225

gray-

The Canon SX-120, selling at $199.00 over Christmas is most probably pretty much the kind of camera you are looking for right now. It has 10X optical zoom, a good built-in flash unit, and it is really a good all around family camera that can even use numerically increased ISO settings up to and including ISO 800.

Have a great day and a Merry Christmas.
