I'm sure some of you remember my threads asking about DSLRs... Well, I have decided on that, I think. However, I'd like a compact camera for snapshots. Ease of carry, robustness, and inexpensive price would all be other things I'd want, but I understand those often do not come all in one package. If I was to go to amazon and purchase a camera right this minute, I would buy a canon a590 IS, but there are a few negatives I've heard about it (Battery life. Camera is kind of fragile, although I myself am a careful user...), so I'm not 100 % sure on that one. Thus, why I'm asking for advice. I know you guys probably think "Wow, does he do no shopping himself?" Well, I have, but I'm afraid I may be overlooking some lesser known cameras that are only known (mostly) to the photography community. Thanks for the advice!
