What's the best "Fully Automatic" point & shoot camera?

I'm looking for the best possible image quality in a fully automatic point & shoot camera. This will mostly be for my wife (she won't use any manual controls), although I'll probably use it occasionally.

I think the G series will be too big and bulky for this purpose, so I was thinking about the S90 or maybe one of the SD cameras (which SD is best these days?)

Looking for opinions... what do you guys think?

Thanks!

I like the SD1200 but I had no interest in HD video at all; I did have an interest in the smallest possible camera. You can see day to day shots with the SD1200 on my personal blogexternal link

Funny, if the S90 had full-HD video this would be a no brainer -- I'd order one right now. :)
