Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FS8
Released January, 2009
The Pros:Zoom works great, good enough for most indoor situations. Image stabilization is excellent, more than accounts for a bit of handshake. Photos are bright and have realistic colors.
The Cons:Artificial lighting conditions come out with some funny lighting. Darker conditions result in some noise in the pictures.

ISO settings and the shutter speed are also automatically controlled, which helps prevent blurry images from shaky hands and moving subjects.
