I need a small camera (really small) to carry with me in everywhere...

I have a XT so i dont need manual functions!

I thought about these cameras:

Sony: T20/W90
Casio: Z1050
Canon: SD1000/SD750

Which one is better?

I really like macros, so i prefer cameras with low distance to shoot macros...

Thanks, everyone...
and sorry about the grammar mistakes, i'm not american :roll:

I lined them up for a comparison....

I have a SD500 and like it very much, in particular for the size and weight. All the cameras you listed are essentially the same size and weight. Since you have an XT - I would go with the Canon and probably the SD750. I have read a couple of places where people have though that the SD1000 was a bit on the cheap side and felt that it would not hold up as well. I would also consider image stablization - none of the models you listed have it. That is really the only item I would add to my SD500. The 750 has the largest screen, 7.1MP is fine for everything - especially in a P&S.

Macro wise - they all range from 10cm to 1cm, with the 750 at 5cm - at that close range is there a real difference? Lens speed - they are all essentially the same except the Sony W90 is a bit slower than the rest. Focal length they are all practically the same. The Casio tops out at ISO 800, while the others go to 1600 or 3200 - better for images in low light but with noise....

Essentially they are all very good cameras, its just which one you would like to use and have in your pocket all the time.
