Sony Cybershot is my choice.
Had a DSC-P30 for over four years, many drops, untold number of attics and crawl spaces, still worked great. Unfortuanately, the last drop broke a little tit off the battery cover. Now to get it to work, I have to manually hold (duct tape??) the battery cover shut.
Have replaced it with a Sony Cybershot DSC-S40 for $199.00 at Office Depot.
Best feature of both is the ADF Beam when the flash is activated. Let's me shoot in dark places without having to hold a flashlight to make sure it's pointing right. I don't even have to hold it up to my eye to shoot in the dark. Just aim the little orange beam and shoot. Let's me have three point contact in attics and still take good photos.
Carry both of them in a belt pouch with velcro closure.
