Point & Shoot

I am in the market for a new Point & Shoot Camera.

I have a 3 year old Sony Cyber-Shot 12.1 but it has seen better days.

It has gotten wet... in rain and with wet hands. It has been sandy, dirty, and sticky. It has really held up and I am impressed.

There are a few things I don't/ didn't like though:
  1. Does not take an SD card... Takes a Sony Memory StickDuo
  2. Takes a long time to focus and shot on Auto
  3. The shutter will not close anymore (seems that cybershots have issues with their shutter
  4. It does not consistently take good photos
Things I do/ did like:
  1. Video recording ability (use it almost daily)
  2. Manual options
  3. Compactness (it's a word I just made up)
Most of the pictures your will see on  The Journey of Three Stones were taking via this camera. Granted... some of the blurriness could be caused by user error. But the camera itself is not consistent.

That being said, I am looking for a great PNS camera with:
  • Manual Mode (I love shooting my DSLR but it's not always practical)
  • Video recording
  • SD card
  • Consistency
  • Compactness
  • Durability.
Have you seen one? Do you have one? Are you are representative of a company who sells ones? I would love to do a review on a camera. Pictures of camera and detailed thoughts and opinions will be given.
