I just bought a Canon Digital IXY 20IS (I just tried to google it, but it seems this series or model is in Japan only--or maybe the model names were changed when brought to America and you could find it in the PowerShot series), and I am absolutely in love with it. :) If I was on my own laptop, I'd quickly transfer and upload a few shots for you--but honestly, the computer I'm on is pretty horrendously slow and I hate to think of the overload it'd have if I tried to do much more than web-browsing on it.
What I can tell you though is that I've been taking excellent photos of food and landscape, and the color preservation is extraordinary (I think it's the macro setting). I've not had experience with many cameras, but I will say this one is fantastic at making things look just as real and amazing in pictures as they were in reality. I'm exceedingly happy with it. :)
