This latest point-and-shoot digital camera from Canon is a looker. A new iteration in the Ixus line-up, the Canon Ixus 300HS promises high speed, better low-light performance and manual controls in an ultra-compact camera.
The Ixus 300HS (also known as PowerShot SD4000 IS) has some pretty nice specs with a 10MP CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 processor.
