->> Husband and son are taking a trip to NY and will be doing a lot of night photography. He wants to take a compact camera. I don't have the time to research them but I use Nikon. Can you please give me your recommendations looking in the price range of 200-400ish

Thank you in advance!!

->> I really like our Canon S100
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/822124-REG/Canon_PowerShot_S100_Digit...

Great exterior manual controls (aperture ring around the lens, shutter speed on dial, etc) so you don't have to go into the menu to change settings.

Also simple auto features and very nice HD video.

I recommend it.

Robert

->> I have yet to see a point and shoot in that price range shoot a decent photo at night....unless it's at a party and
you're blasting away with a flash. the noise in most P&S cameras(including the Canon G series) is abysmal.

->> Thank you to everyone who has commented. I have narrowed it down to the Canon S100 or the Lumix LX5

Any thoughts on one vs. the other?
