I have just recieved My IXUS 500 (S500) Camera but am a bit wary of the size. Thought it would be a bit smaller and not so Heavy. I have 12 days in which I can return it.

I have looked at the recomendations on this site and was wondering if the Pentax S4i is better than the Ixus 500 (S500) or any other suggestions.

I really want a camera that i can take anywhere at any time!!!

Thanks in advance

For quality of pictures and build, you can't beat what you already have. The S4i is quite a bit smaller (credit card size) but the picture quality won't be as good as the canon, but unless you're going to print a lot of 8X10 then the S4i should be fine. It is certainly a lot smaller and lighter.

please also go to pbase.com under camera database heading check out images taken with the optio s4i - not bad at all, and if you have a photographer's talent, you can do even better... all in all a great camera, i think the canon s500 is overrated.!!
