I’ve had great luck with Canon cameras both point-and-shoot and DSLR. They have a fast refresh rate and are really good at correcting for movement. I’ve had Kodak, HP, and Nikon point-and-shoots that simply took way too long to get ready to take the next picture.

I personally use Nikon and won’t use any other kind. My mom has a Canon Power shot and I have used it, I hate it. IT sucks.  I have a DSLR and love it.  In fact here is a few pictures have taken with it.

I have had 3 PowerShots. I’ve loved each one into the ground and then replaced it with a new model. I’ve loved them all. I also have an entry-level DSLR (T1i, I think?). I usually only both with the PowerShot because it takes such good pictures and is so convenient.

Currently, I have a PowerShot Elph 100HS.

Sometimes, a PowerShot comes out that’s not so great, but I always check out the CNET reviews and similar first. Usually the Canon PowerShots get reviews along the lines of “best in class for the price.”

My mom is a photographer and just traded in all her canon stuff for an E-M5 Olympus mFT and she uses mostly Panasonic lenses with it.  From what I have read on her national photography group blog, it is becoming very popular with professional photogs.  All I know is that it takes great pictures from what I have seen.

I love my Canon. I’ve had a Nikon and a Fuji prior. Won’t buy anything now other than a Canon

Following this thread because I want to buy a new camera as well! I currently have a Nikon point and shoot camera, it’s about 4 years old and just not working as well as it used to.

Bought a nikon recently to replace my casio exilim. I sort of regret letting the sales associate talk me out of another casio. It’s good, but the casio was better. I’d had two of them since I fell in love with them years ago while working at The Sharper Image and showing them to many customers… soooo that’s my recommendation,

Darling Husband got tired of buying me a new camera every year (because I kept breaking them) so he got smart and bought me a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS20 – it’s shockproof and waterproof…perfect for a klutz like me and for when I travel.  It’s funny seeing people’s horrified faces when I bring my camera out to the water with me. I also don’t have to worry when my 2-year-old niece plays with my camera.  It has great video camera capabilities and the new version has GPS built in. Now Darling Husband has to think of other gifts to give me every year….lol

I bought a Canon Powershot Elph 310 HS last Christmas and I LOVE it! It’s tiny – nice and slim – and takes fantastic pictures. I find that it has enough manual settings to make me happy but not so many to confuse me, and it takes great photos on the point and shot settings. I think I paid around $250 during a Boxing Day special. I know that DSLR cameras take better pictures, but for something that I can stick in my purse and not have to mess around with, this one seemed to be the winner in my research.
