I posted this over on DPr as well, but couldn't resist the opportunity to evangelise about my new compact camera here too
Anyone looking for a low cost GRD back up or alternative to getting one might want to consider the Samsung L74 Wide, details
and I've put a small gallery of unaltered full size images online here
No RAW mode, no aperture/shutter or manual mode. Sensor is quite noisy, images are a little soft also. But it does have a program mode which allows you to adjust exposure compensation, ISO/WB/contrast/sharpness, and also an 'advanced shake reduction' mode which actually seems to work to a certain extent. It's also extremely well made, all metal, black and compact.
If you want a rough and ready camera (in terms of image quality that is, the camera's finish is rather sleek and stylish) with a 28mm equivalent lens that isn't going to break the bank, it's worth considering. And Mitch - if you read this, it will give you all the noise and graininess you could ever possibly desire
