    I want to upgrade to a 5MP camera in the next few weeks, but I'm having trouble deciding what to go for. My budget is around £300, and I'm looking for a compact which is preferably pocket sized, and light.
    I am currently torn betweeen the following models:

    Sony DSC-p100
    Canon Powershot s50
    Canon IXUS 500.

    I don't pretend to be an expert on cameras, but I'm looking for something with excellent pic quality, plenty of buttons to press, and something that my wife will like when I tell her how much it cost!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    The S60 has replaced the S50. Its smaller the the S50 and i thought it was pretty light, it has more features then the 500. For some reason i never liked the feel of it though. Try the 500 and the S50 and see how they feel to you before you buy

    I would cross off Sony straight away because the price of memory stick is a joke.

    The Ixus is a great little camera and that's the one I'd go for.
