I can recommend the Canon Powershot S3 IS, its a great camera, just about pocket sized but will give better shots than any "mini" compact, its got a 12x zoom, a flip-out preview screen so you can get great shots of kids, pets, etc from ground level, or shoot holding the camera high. Also has a live histogram preview, and excellent movie quality, though I know you dont see it as being important.

What is important is that it has image stabilisation built into the lens.

It takes SD cards just so you know.

I have a canon 20D and a few good lenses, and while the powershot is not quite as good (obviously), it still gives great quality and is very good fun due to the flip-out screen - eg you can take very good street photos with complete silence at 400mm zoom with the camera held at waist level, and no one knows you are doing it.
