I just got a Panasonic Lumix ZS6 and am really enjoying it. It's a point and shoot, but has a fairly wide lens and allows quite a bit of control (including manual settings for shutter speed and aperture). If you don't want to bother with manual settings, the "intelligent auto" works surprisingly well. I wanted something a bit more portable (and affordable) than a dslr, but wanted to be able to experiment a bit more with photos.
