Best Everyday Camera?

I own a consumer digital SLR camera and a few lenses. I guess for some people that qualifies me as “expert”.

A friend asked me what camera to get for everyday use. Easy to carry, indoor performance, and great picture quality are the requirements. He couldn’t tell F-stop from bus stop, so Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 is the short answer. Head over to TWIP for a quick opinion from Scott Bourne or here for an in-depth review. Street price is around $420; not cheap for a 10 megapixel camera but you get what you pay for. Great picture quality at high ISO, fast F2.0 lens, and 24mm wide angle lens means you can capture good photos in situations other $200 cameras cannot. Did I mention it also does great video?
