You may want to consider the Canon PowerShot S90 if you want a camera that takes high quality photos indoors without using a flash. Many camera makers create lines that focus on one specific point or application of the camera. In this case, S90 does well in low light conditions because of its wide angle lens and ability to capture subtle details. You can also use the large display for viewing your pictures.
This is a great camera for those that like to have more control over their photographic compositions. For example, you'll have manual control of aperture, sensitivity, as well as shutter speed. All that plus the easy to use interface for settings makes this camera a great choice. The next camera we will be looking at is the Nikon Coolpix S3000. Nikon has earned the right to be shown some respect, after all, because they've been around for awhile. For those you don't have much of a budget to work with, this ultra compact camera is a good option because it is inexpensive. But the S3000 is not a lot above what we would consider to be average, unfortunately. With 12 megapixels and others, it has what would be considered standard features. But the LCD is quite difficult to see in the sunlight which is always a major disappointment, to us and perhaps to you too. And because it is made mostly of plastic, this camera looks cheap. The image quality of this camera is average which will only produce average picture quality. This is a camera for a specific budget and gets the job done if you need a camera.
For more of an overall application and less specialization, you may want to consider the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5. While this camera does lack jpeg processing abilities, you won't be disappointed in the pictures you take. This pocket sized camera has 10.1 megapixel resolution and a 3 inch TFT LCD display. The LX5 is the follow up to the super successful DMC-LX3. Improving on the LX3 was quite the task for Panasonic.
There's not much improvement from the LX3 to the LX5 that we can tell. There is about a 30% increase in the sensitivity of the LX5 sensor. When you combine the LX5's LCD use of a higher index for color rendering with the LED back lighting, you will see improved color.
Sometimes it's tough to do a great follow-up to a terrific product, but that's an enviable position to be in for any pocket size camera maker. Finding a great camera for any spec, application, or budget is possible. Cameras range in price for the low hundreds up to $500 or sometimes, even more. Also, the most important thing is to determine your need for the camera and why you want to get it. Once you know that answer, you can start researching cameras that will meet that need.
