Default Need help selecting a high end P & S

Hi,

I am looking for a high end P & S with excellent image quality and some manual control under 250 bucks.

I selected Canon SX 130 IS, Canon SD 4000 IS, Sony DSC H55

Can you guys help and provide feedback and suggest better models

Thanks

Well I wouldn't call any of these high-end by any means but if the size doesn't bother you, I'd recommend the SX130. If you want something a little smaller, go for the SD4000. The SD4000 would actually do the best in low light due to it's F2.0 lens.

Five-0 is correct-

The Canon SD-4000 would be a good choice and Amazon just reduced the price.

Thanks for the responses Five0 and Sarah. Sorry I am a Novice at cameras so I thought 250 for a P & S should be able to by a high-end. I can extend my budget a little and can go to 350. Let me know if there are better options otherwise I will go with Canon SD-4000

Please be aware that the $209 price on the canon SD-4000 offered by Amazon is only a 1 day, 12/06 only special price.

Thanks LTZ470. After reading the reviews of S95, I believe so.

I'll second the S95. You should be able to get it for $329 at the next NewEgg sale. They've had it for that or lower at least 3 times in the last month.
