I just bought an Olympus VR350 from Big W. On sale for $144 (was $200, I bought a silver one). It's not bad - 16MP, 10x optical zoom, good screen at the back, can set some features to manual. Obviously not as good as a DSLR, but I thought it was good value for the price and small enough to pop into a pocket. Bought it for general happy snaps (first day at school and we didn't want iPhone pics only, so it was a quick buy this week)
If you are going travelling and want to buy a camera for your trip, think about the zoom and wide-angle capabilities of the camera. That's one of the things we have noticed when travelling - having enough zoom to get the detail or being able to take a decent wide angle or panoramic shot.
Olympus SZ-14 is a bit heavier and bigger than the one I bought - 14MP, 24x Ultra-Zoom Wide Angle (25mm equivalent), $194. But not as chunky as a DSLR.
It really depends how big and bulky you are prepared to go for a holiday camera and what features you want.

[/size]I got a new camera for Christmas, my biggest pre-requisitewas that it took a quick shot, I get so frustrated when you have to press thebutton down and it takes ages to take the shot. Secondly was quality. I got thelatest Sony Cyber Shot for $200.
