Default Finding a good quality compact camera as a gift.

Hey all,
I am trying to get my family a new point and shoot digital camera since their current one is crap (some kodak 4mega pixel one). I want the camera to produce nice quality images, I my self own a pentax kx dslr, my budget is at around $150, so far I have looked into the canon sd1300 and the panasonic dmc-fh1, if any one has some input or other suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks.

Canon SX130 too big? It was $149 at Newegg for Black Friday and may be on sale again.

I know it's outside your budget a bit but the Nikon S8100 is $199 at Target now. They're sold out online though so you'd have to pick one up in-store.

Five-0-

I looked carefully at the Nikon S-8100 and I ended up passing on it due to its focusing errors.
