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.
