    I need a quality point and shoot camera for a trip to Italy for 3 weeks.

    I don't need something fancy like a DSLR. A simple point and shoot digital camera will do.

    There's plenty of mixed reviews, but I'm sure that there's a lot of pros on here that knows more about certain cameras.

    The Canon SD models are great. My friends have the SD550 and SD600 and if I were to get a P+S I'd prob go with something like that. The newer models like the SD800 have IS so that would be a better option if you wanna spend a little bit more. I'm a Nikon guy but for P+S I would go with a Canon.

    I bought my wife a Canon S3IS and I'm pretty happy with it for a P&S. it takes pretty good pics, and gives you the ability to manually control the settings.

    i've got a fuji f10 (older model) but i've been pretty happy with it. i wish it had more of the manual settings, but i believe the newer ones do. the biggest draw for me to get it was its excellent high iso performance. i can take pictures at iso800 indoors without a flash and they are good enough for 4x6's, which is about all i expect out of a pocket p&s. if you know that a lot of the museum's etc that you will be visiting won't let you use flashes then i'd look into the fuji f series cameras.

    edit - at iso400 i've printed a few 8x10's that came out awesome, i don't think i've tried printing any that i shot at iso800 though.
