Default New digital camera needed! Suggestions please!

I'm in need of a new digital camera as my current one is ready for retirement!! It is sucking the batteries down faster then I can replace them!! The camera I currently have is a Cannon Power Shot A560. I'm looking for one that has decent megapixels as well as a decent zoom lens and probably one with a lithium ion battery that is rechargeable. Also something that is small/slim so I can just put it in my purse!

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your help,
Connie

My point and shoot purse camera is a Panasonic Lumix and I really like it. It was recommended to me by someone who was a pro photographer and used this brand for her own purse camera.

Hi Connie, my brother has bought many cameras over the years and a while back he got a Sony RX-100 and loves it. In July he bought the latest verson of it the Sony RX-100 ll. He really likes them because they're compact and can take it with him while traveling on business trips. They take really good pictures and have the rechargable battery. I've seen several of the photos he's shot and they look really good. The second version is a little pricey since it just came out this summer but the reviews on it were pretty favorable. I too am thinking of possibly getting one because it's easier not to have to lug a bigger camera around with all the lenses when you want or need to travel light. Good luck!
