I am thinking of buying a new camera and wondered if anyone could offer advice on which one to get. Basically, I want something that is easy to use, quite lightweight and takes really good pictures (holiday snaps, nothing professional). Any suggestions most appreciated!

I second the Panasonic Lumix TZ series, I've had the 12x TZ6 for many years and it has a nice Leica lens so good quality pics and easy to use. I bought it for holiday as I didn't want to lug my SLR camera and lenses around and have never looked back, brilliant zoom capability for the size. Only upgrade I'd consider now is to go for the newer version with a bigger zoom : ). The important thing for me when choosing a camera is that it has to feel "right" in my hand and be easy to reach all the controls so go and try some out.
