If I am standing in a store looking at a row of almost identically matched small digital cameras, does brand matter? Will the Canon be better than Fujifilm, etc?

I heard that the Canon Powershots have a auto function that gives a lot better shots than a lot of those other cameras right out of the box.

I've owned 2 Fujifilms, and they're s**t, my biggest grump though is the shutter speed, both ones I've bought I've paid a bit more thinking I'm getting quality and have been disappointed every time, not much point trying to take action shots when the action is over by the time the camera takes the photo - the photos they take aren't that flash either Bah Humbug

I have a Fujifilm sitting here that doesn't really go properly any more. It's not endearing me to the brand eek

fujifilm are decent, they have good lenses.

but depending what you want it for, look for a 'fast' lens something with a low f number as possible. usually
in the specs as f2.8-5.6  or f3.1-6
thats the largest aperture available at a given focal length. larger the aperture the more light , the more light the
faster the shutter speed.
look for shutter lag, the time between pushing the button and the shutter firing.
don't be too concerned with zoom if you are just getting a compact. most are 14-16Mp
canon is good. sony is good. panasonic/lumix is good. olympus and pentax are up there too.

find one you might like and check out reviews somewhere like http://www.dpreview.com/
