I'd love to get a good pocket camera with a big LCD and real image stabilization, since I like to shoot in low light without flash. What do you recommend?
Quite a few compacts have "real" -- that is, optical -- stabilization, which counteracts camera shake by moving lens elements or shifting the imaging chip. Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Samsung, and Sony all make them. Optical stabilization allows steady shooting with superzoom cameras like the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 (a 12X zoom) or Olympus SP-550 Ultrazoom (a humongous 18X zoom).
