I like the idea of getting a camera that offers a rotating or swivel lens. (Because most of the pix I take are by me sticking my arm out to snap a self-portrait of me and a friend, and I never know if I'm framing the photo quite right)

I discovered the Sony DSC-F88 has a rotating lens. Similarly, the Pentax Optio X has a swivel lens.

Which one should I buy? Or is there another camera with rotating/swivel lens available that I should look at?

Aside from the rotating lens, my criteria includes (in order of priority):
1. compact size/portability/smaller is better
2. as little shutter lag time as possible
3. takes nice pictures in low-light situations like restaurants and bars

I'd love to hear your recommendations regarding these cameras or any other camera that has a rotating/swivel lens.

Conversely, if you have used a rotating lens camera and find it awkward to use, please share that also. I appreciate your thoughts!
