Hey folks

My beloved Canon has given up the ghost in the form of a lens error, and I need to buy a new compact digital

My budget is around the 200 mark, and I started looking at the Panasonic TZ7, and then had a glance at the Canon PowerShot SX200 - but not mad keen on the pop up flash, as I do a lot of travelling and know it would get knocked sooner or later.

I like the idea of:
- a c. 25mm wide angle, HD video, c. 10/12x optical zoom.
- a fairly fast lens!
- something that performs well in bright and in low light
- something that gives good colours (some previous cameras' photos just seemed so washed out) - now I recognise I'm not going to get DSLR colours, but something close would be good!!

RAW isn't something I know a great deal about, and I'm guessing I won't be able to buy a camera that shoots raw on my modest budget

As you can probably tell from my message, I'm not the most technical person, but I'm learning - I'd be really happy to receive any advice, and thanks very much in advance
