Good Questions: A Compact Camera With Great Image Stabilization

Lauren asks:

I am looking for a great compact digital camera. I'm overwhelmed with too many choices out there.
I don't need too many bells and whistles, but I'd like the following:
At least 5 mega-pixels
As little lag time as possible (I love to take candid snap-shots, but by the time the camera actually takes a picure, most people are posing!) Image stabilization Sturdy!

Does anyone out there have a great camera like this that they could recommend?

Thank you!

We're done lots of research for you Lauren, and we've successfully narrowed it down to two cameras to give you one of the easiest choices in the history of Unplggd.

Canon SD790 IS: This camera has received high ratings across the board for image quality, craftsmanship, and great image stabilization performance. Personally, being an owner of three Canon cameras now, I can reassure you won't regret going this route. Available for $307.

Sony Cybershot T100: If you are willing to push that budget even further, you can have both the advantages for great images with a tiny footprint with Sony's latest model that features amazing image stabilization, a sleek, ultra-slim design, and quick responsiveness. Available in black, silver, and red finishes for $699.
