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!

Fizgig777 Excellent Canon PowerShot:

Highly recommended. Can get better prices elsewhere, but wanted to share the quickest link I could find =) Besides taking amazing shots, it doesn't use pesky alkaline batteries and the Canon battery packs last a looooong time --- 200-300 photos on one charge when not using the flash.

blink Can't go wrong with a Canon powershot or nikon whatevershot. Some of the sonys are nice but seem pricey for given performance.
Check out ken rockwell's site for solid recommendations.
