    Hi everyone,

    I want to purchase a digital camera in Japan and I am looking for some recommendations. I have no knowledge of digital camera what so ever (Yes, I am a n00b :p ).

    Here are the features / cost that I am looking for:

    - Small and Slim (Easy to carry around)
    - Cost should be between 20,000 yen to 30,000 yen
    - Anti-shaking ability (or whatever that feature is call)
    - Night mode (a night mode that doesn't take 30 sec to take a picture)
    - A respectable Brand
    - Decent picture quality (more than 6 mega pixels will be great)

    Here is an optional one:
    - Preferably not available in Canada (The camera is for my sister as a souvenir, so she can show it off).

    Any recommendations are welcome, and please let me know if this list is not doable.

    Thanks in advance,

    with Hamburglar.
    it may be a little more than you were planning on spending, but the 7.1MP Canon SD800 IS is a knockout camera. It has image stabilization, takes great shots in low light and is pretty thin. dpreview

    Thank you for your quick reply. Though the price is a bit above my budget, I will definitely consider it.
