Canon, Casio, Panasonic and Samsung are "standout" brands

Consumer Reports recently conducted a test of 54 point-and-shoot digital camera models, and four models came out on top in their research: Canon, Casio, Panasonic and Samsung. They also found you shouldn't spend more than $150 for a well-performing point-and-shoot.

Is it just me, or is anyone else surprised that Nikon was not in the top four? Any other brands you think performed better than these?
