Have used Canon Powershots for years, was the only pocket camera that took nice pics and ran on AA batteries. Understand the limitations of the format, looking for the 'best' of that breed, my needs:

Swapable battery packs
Very small
fast to take the #@s& pic when the button/screen is pushed.
Good pics

Will almost always be on auto, don't want or need interchangeable lenses

Thanks all!
Hi jbrady33,

I've used a Canon Powershot SX110 IS for the last several years. When I go into manual mode and do Macro with the zoom I can get shots that are good enough for what I need to do.

If it ain't broke don't fix it!
