Hi, I'm going on a trip on September 1st and I need a digital camera. I'm looking for a point-and-shoot under 300$CAD shipped with decent battery life, zoom and of course picture quality. I haven't much time to do research and will be ordering in next 40 hours probably. So far I've identified the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ20/ZS10 as the best candidate. It was mentionned in every top 10 as a popular choice, it's well within my budget, it's available and the build quality seems excellent.

Before I order I am wondering if there's anything obviously better in that price range? Any concerns about this particular camera?

Note immediate availability and price are topmost priorities here, I use shopbot.ca and ebay.ca to check for that as I live in Canada.

Thanks for your insight!

Looks like a decent P&S camera for travel photography. If you want small/compact, I'd say that's a great choice.

The Lumix series is pretty good, you should be happy with your camera.
