Point and Shoot Camera

I'm looking for a compact P&S camera for the wife. Something that is smaller than a mirrorless or DSLR and will take pretty good pictures for digital/Facebook without costing $800+.

The costco deals on the Canon Powershot G7X looks pretty nice but the flip screen and pop-out flash look really gimmicky. But if that's the best value then so be it... However, definitely looking for deals that are middle of the road between cost/value and image quality.

I think the G7X is an awesome camera. Huge sensor on a pocket sized body.
For a long time Sony dominated the large sensor/pocket size camera market but I didn't like their small zoom capabilities.
If the price drops far enough, I might be tempted. But I just got a new cell phone with a great camera so I'm not sure if I'll actually carry the G7X with me (even though the G7X obviously takes much better pictures than any cell phone).

On Canon's refurbished website, I bought the Canon g15 over the g16 and g1x. It cost a total of 215. I've been amazed by the picture quality and size of the body. It is just slightly bigger than your usual cell phone or P&S camera. It didn't cost me all that much either, so if I were to lose it I could replace it. It is also a very quick P&S with very little, if any lag at all.

I just purchased the G7X with this bundle through Adorama. After the rebate it comes out to a great price, plus you get a great photo printer: http://www.adorama.com/ICAG7XZ.html
