I have one of these too. It replaced my older Canon SD400. Some shots from the SD770 -

I like how small and light the canon powershots are. The SD770's battery life is pretty good too. But a friend has a Panasonic Lumix that really blows my powershot out of the water -

The lumix is a bigger and bulkier camera though.
I have used a couple of Pentax Optio waterproof cameras. One was a W20 a friend found and gave me after I lost my SD400 and before I bought the SD770 -

Last winter I picked up a W80 for ice climbing & such -

The W80 is supposedly also freezeproof, dustproof and shockproof, but the lithium-ion battery does not perform all that well in cold temps -- I was expecting better, having used my SD400 in similar conditions. And in low light there is a lot of sensor noise .. at ISO 200 my SD770 captures more detail despite having a 10 megapixel sensor vs. the W80's 12. Perhaps the W90 addresses these issues, but from what I've read it seems unlikely. On the good side, the W80 is cheap right now
I have read good things about the Sony TX5 -- anybody used one ?
