Default ELPH Size Sharp, Low Noise Anyone?

Dear Forum,
I have about given up my search, but I thought I would try asking: Is there a pocket size (less than 5 oz) point and shoot made by anyone that takes sharp, low noise pictures? I have a 4 MP Fuji that takes better pictures than any of the new cameras I can find. I have settled on the Panasonic DMC-FH8, but it still isn't as good as my old Fuji. I like the new ones as they are so small and light.

If you reduce pics from the current crop of cams you 4MP, can you honestly say that the pics from your old Fuji are still better? If so, I'd like to see it.

I just purchased a Canon PowerShot ELPH 520 HS 10.1 MP CMOS Digital Camera with 12x Ultra Wide-Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom Lens and Full 1080p HD Video
and am very happy with the resulting photos.
You need light to get sharp shots so outside it is excellent and inside you have to have lights on and/ or use the built in flash.
This camera sells for $259 so it might be a little steep.
There are other makers and so many models you will get old looking at all the specs.
Let us know what you are looking for.
Tell us some more.
Do you want another point and shoot?
What is your price range?
Do you want to shoot video?
Do you want a zoom lens?
Fuji HS-20
