Need your help again everyone...

Recap... I had a Canon SX10 that was stolen, (I was pretty happy with my SX10, probably less pixels and larger sensor, not sure though) replaced it with a Panasonic FZ100.

After struggling with noise issues, it was determined that I had a defective FZ100. They replaced it and the noise is not as bad, but to me still not acceptable for this kind of price. I took it in yesterday and they have agreed to take it back and replace it with something else.

In the beginning I was wanting a super zoom, with fast frames per second, that's why I decided on the FZ100. I have now determined that my wants and needs differ a bit.

I now have thought to give up the super zoom part of my needs/wants. I'd like to get something that has good image quality, performs well in low light, has manual controls and has a quick frames per second as possible. I'm wanting something that is a overall good performer with good quality results.

I'm leaning towards a Canon again, just cause I was fairly satisfied with the results for the most part. Is there a Canon that shoots well (for a point and shoot) in low light, decent fps and has good image quality?

Any suggestions?

The canon Rebels are great cameras.
If you dont want to spend that much then look into the Canon SX20.

You may want to check out the Canon G12. It won't perform as well in low light as a DSLR but the sample images I have seen are pretty good for a comparatively small sensor camera. It has full manual control and can shoot in raw as well as having a video mode. It's a bit pricey though from having a magnesium body which makes it a lot heavier but more robust than most compacts.

+1 on the G-12. My old G3 was an absolute warrior for more than 6 years. It took plenty of pounding, and produced great shots. Colours were always spot-on out of the camera.

Thanks all.

I took the plunge and went with the Canon Rebel t1i and kit lens. Limited on my shooting with only that lens, but gives me something to work towards. I was going the dslr direction anyway.

Thanks again.
