Canon PowerShot A2000 IS 8 to 10 Megapixel
Inside its sleek, pared down design, this top-of-the-line PowerShot A2000 IS is packed with easy-to-use features. You've got a 10.0-megapixel resolution and a 6x Optical Zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer for big, beautiful prints and superb stability. To keep subjects looking their best, the DIGIC III Image Processor with Canon Face Detection handles the technical details - automatically. An Easy Mode allows you to concentrate on your scene, while Easy Playback lets you screen your images on a super-sized 3.0-inch LCD.

Strengths: Still small enough to fit into your pocket and go everywhere you go. I know people with SLR camera's with a far more powerful lens, etc. But they never have the thing with them because it is so bulky.
The 6x optical zoom makes a huge difference from the more standard 3x in most camera's.
It uses the light sensor to automatically adjust the display brightness.
Its got a tilt sensor to automatically rotate images - very handy.
The face detection works like a charm - even at large distances.
Its optical anti-shake mechanism works beautifully every time - now even my wife can take sharp and clear pictures - in even low light conditions!
Its auto and easy mode does their job very well - I would say in about 99% of the situations you just need to put it in Auto mode. The landscape mode also works very well. I haven't found a situation yet where the camera's preset modes didn't do the job and I had to change some settings manually
They could have recessed the display a little bit. Mine already has a scratch mark on it.
Why don't my camera have the "slow Synchro" setting under "Flash Settings" - as mentioned in the manual.
The perfect mix between a professional SLR and amateur point-and-shoot.
