I will be using the camera for photos of my children (one 7 one on the way). The camera list I gave is my new one now that the LZ3 won't be out until April. Please help. Thanks

Not sure if you're looking at compact or?? The Canon A610 is a high rated cam. AWESOME for parents.

If you're not concerned about size, there is also the S2 IS, also by Canon.

I would look at the Fuji F-10 or the soon to be released F-30. These cameras offer great low light shooting performance, and greatly extended falsh range when you want it.

I now have another problem. The panasonic LZ3 is available now from onecall.com for $229. I was set on the fuji F10 or F11. The LZ3 has the OIS and the 6x zoom. I don't need the 6 Megapixels but taking indoor pictures without a flash really interested me. HELP torn between the LZ3 and the Fuji F10/F11

Make sure you read the fine print on the LZ3...the ISO 880 and 1600 capability is only available on the "high sensitivity mode". Panasonic hasn't explained what that means yet, but it offers the following disclaimer on their web site:

Resolution is significantly decreased when using High Sensitivity Mode.

If it's anything like some of the Kodak attempts at high ISO, it will only be available in the lowest resolution setting, such as 1.8 MP.

The F10 permits ISO 800 and 1600 at full resolution of 6 MP. If you want to wait for a real low light camera, wait for the next generation F10 - the F30...ISO 3200!
