I've had an A303 Fuji. And its done well i just need a point and shoot camera that takes pretty good pix. I'd like at least a 3.2 mega pixl camera that is small and can fit in my pocket and doesn't have stuff sticking out all over it. Also can't be a sony cyber-shot I don't like em.

Dimensions (D x W x H, inches): 1.4 x 3.8 x 2.5 ( a303 ) i'd like em in that area or smaller.

Check the Minolta X series (Xg, Xi, Xt). I think there are a few people on the boards with these. I have not used them, so have no opinion. Definately p-n-s, and very thin. price $299 to $499 MSRP.

Check with the Minolta board.

Check out the Kyocera cameras (http://www.kyoceraimaging.com/). They've got some compact models with swivel bodies, and great performance.

Why not give some consideration to either the Sony W-1 (about $360) or the HP R707 (about $300). They are both 5mp, quite small, and Jeff has done recent camera reviews on each of these digital cameras.

I'd give a look to the new Panasonic FX7 and FX2. Those look to be really sharp. have Image Stablization, and should be out by the end of August.

I think I am going to wait and pick one up then.

The Canon S400 and S500 also look good.

I played with a friend's Nikon 5100 last weekend and I thought it was a pretty nice package, though I didn't get to see the images on the computer to play with them. The 4100 and 4200 both look good on paper, with the 4200 having more features and manual controls in the 4MP class. Alas, you have to give up AA batteries for the 4200.

The search for the perfect camera continues...

Since you didn't state a size on that search criteria...

The search ends at the $7500 point. Take a look at the Canon 1Ds. Add about $600 for a nice lens. About 3 degrees of separation from that is the Nikon D70 at about $1300.

These are pocket cameras if you are talking backpack pocket. ;)

Well, I backpack a lot, and I have a my camera(s) already for that. I am looking for a shirtpocket camera to carry around town and while skiing. I may have to give up on the AAs, all cameras are compromises somewhere.

Besides, I already have a good set of Cannon lenses. :D
