My Canon Powershot G5 is robust, very reliable, excellent results combined with a tremendous battery life. Still going strong after 5 years of regular use. The fact that you remove the lens surround and replace it with additonal lens and or filter housing is an added bonus. Works well with a dedicated flash unit too - on the hot shoe.
It's a little slow by 2009 standards and the rotating screen is also smaller than you'd get now, but after 5 years of of total reliability it has showed the value of paying that little bit more in the first instance
