My preferred cameras:

 

Compact:  Canon Digital IXUS 60 160 approx, 6 megapixel, 3x optical,  very compact and light,

Compact alternative with optional waterproof case: Olympus Mju,  180 approx,

 

Waterproof general case 35 approx www.pixmania.co.uk

 

Small with zoom:  Panasonic TZ3,  10X optical zoom with Image stabilisation 250 approx.  Great for sports events, without needing to lug masses of gear.  It still just about fits in your pocket and is not too heavy round the neck.

 

SLR - If you are going this technical then its a personal choice.
