It's simple:.

"Buy the biggest piece of Silicon you can afford. Get one with as few pixels as you can stand.".

Oh, and avoid Panasonic as they suffer from noise..

Skipping lightly over Chuxter's jovial response ( which is kind of correct in an extreme sort of way ) and moving on....

Your question has no answer..

All P&S's ( all cameras in fact ) are compromises of one sort or another..

What you have to ask to get an answer is what P&S give the least compromised results in specific conditions..

I can think of conditions where I'd prefer a TZ3 to an F30 or an A710IS to a DSLR even..

You may have seen these on other posts, but I'll share with you here. I used a Canon SD 850IS for photos taken during my trip to India. It's easy to use, light weight and, if set correctly, can yield very colorful images. As been said several times in the past, however, any camera can yield excellent results. It all depends on the abilities of the photographer using said camera. If you're standing in the wrong place, at the wrong time of day, with the camera set incorrectly, your images will reflect accordingly.

The noise issue with the Panasonics is more myth than reality. Any two cameras with the same number of mega pixels in a given sized sensor have similar amounts of noise. Do the photos from the inside of a dimly lit church in this thread look noisy to you?http://forums.dpreview.com/...forums/read.asp?forum=1033&message=25002423.

You would probably get better advice if you would provide more info as to what type of P&S you're thinking of. There are the little bitty ones and there are the "Bridge" types, and many inbetween..

Reading the reviews on this site and others should give you more information than just asking such a broad question. Most point and shoots will produce nice images in the right hands and under certain conditions. It depends mostly on the photographer, post processing skills, and the subject matter/conditions..

Merry Christmas.

Disregarding any other parameters such as size, cost, and performance you'd have to say that the Nikon P5100 is a contender but has terrible speed. OTOH, the Canon G7/9 and complete A6X0 series have the best images in their camp due to the lens, sensor size and pixel ratios..

With that being said, currently the A650IS and G9 are outstanding for IQ AND performance. They both have IS and a 6X lens, but the features are slightly different.If RAW, build and a hot shoe are important - G9.Swivel LCD, AA batteries and less cost A650Regards,Hank.

Cross-train and have your resume updated...the writing's on the wall..

This is precisely the false argument put forward every time..

You shoot a static scene where you can use base ISO and a long exposure, and hence use IS to handhold a long exposure, and claim the sensor isn't noisy..

Well any camera can shoot a reasonable longish exposure at base ISO. Any camera than cannot is junk..

If you have to raise ISO to shoot a moving object so as to allow a faster shutter speed IS becomes useless..
