I've got a Canon SD1100IS & like it so far. Easy to use. Seems to have decent optics. Has both a viewfinder & screen, which is useful for certain shots. Nice small case. Had an SD630 before that, which got swiped from a hotel room in Knoxville, but it was pretty solid too.
Before getting the 1100, all the homework I had done indicated Canon & Sony were the strongest options in that $150 to $300 range.
My only complaint with the Canon is battery life in sub 10 degree weather. Even in an inside coat pocket while snowmobiling, anything less than a fully charged battery won't power up. Eva's Sony handles that quite a bit better.
One more thing. That Sony survived her crash at The Gap like a champ. It was even fully submersed for at least 10 minutes & worked pefectly after drying it out.
