I have a Canon A590 IS

But as you can see, it's too bulky. I want something slimmer. I'm not a mega pixel whore so even a 7.2 MP camera would be fine. I just want the best slim one under $200.

that's a tad too much IMO. i want something less. i just want it to be decent is all.

What about SD1100 IS?

Have an SD1100 IS and love it. Bought it based on hundreds of positive reviews and it doesn't seem like you can go wrong.

I've had a Canon SD750 for a couple years. Not sure if you can buy them new, but I love it. Sits in my gf's purse full time and has taken 1000's of shots no problems. Love the big screen and compact size.

Go look around and haggle for display models.

I got a Nikon S6 for $130 but that was because I worked on the store. :mamoru:

are Nikon P&S good cameras? The name "coolpix" alone makes me avoid them

looking for something small and cheap too. dont take out my camera a lot when sight seeing in other countries because i generally end up getting wasted and drunk + slr is not a good combo.. so i never get any pictures of where I've been :(

I had one a while ago and loved it. I dont remember which model but it took awsome pics. I dropped it once and it never turned on again :wtc:
I dropped my Canon A590 a few times and it still works perfectly :o

yeah I was pretty sad. I dropped it from no more than 2.3'-3' :hs: this was around 2002ish

I dropped my Coolpix 2100 from the same distance but onto carpet, but fortunately nothing happened.

Oh and for that poster asking for the Coolpix series. They are pretty awesome, although slow.

I just got my wife a canon sd790is (10mp and just under $200) I was pretty impressed with it and she loves it b/c its simple to use.
