I tend to not carry a pack or anything and am always walking wherever I go. I don't always carry my camera like going to and from work. I am thinking I would like a pocket sized digital camera just to grap some shots as I see them. Right now the Fuji F10 looks pretty nice. Its pretty quick for a point and shoot.

Do any of you carry another camera?

I carry an old Canon 2.1MP in my briefcase--just in case. However, anytime I think there might be a photo op, I take the big cam and 17-85mmIS lens.

My wife always carries her A75 in her purse. The only downside of my 20D is its size, a problem with any DSLR. I think a pocket sized point and shoot camera is a great addition to your bag of tricks.

Minolta G400 ALWAYS... Ive even used it while my other camera is on a clamp or
tripod for softball, turn around a get dugout shoots, batter box and pitching warm
ups with the G400. Even when I'm close people hardly notice it. It's 4 MP and if i
would be getting one now I'd go with a higher resolution to give me some room too
crop. I'm sure they are all good cameras. Small Sony's look nice but a little
expensive. The Minoltas have FAST start to capture.

Here is a sample shot. Auto mode. 3rd or 4th picture after first light. Maybe not
Rodney Blair standards but I was happy with the camera. I wish i could take a
picture as good as Rodney Blair.

I am trying, but it's awfully hard to not pick up my backpack when I leave for the office each day. I keep telling myself to take th S410 and leave the 10D outfit at home, then I find myself in a field of wild flowers shooting at the 400mm end of my 100-400, wide open at around 10 feet. I typically pack the digicam in the SLR bag and never take it out. You cannot duplicate this type of DOF with a digicam unless you shoot from about 1-2 feet:

I love my Olympus C-770uz (10x zoom). It is a great pns. It never takes a bad picture. And the colors are vibrant, and I love the way it handles skin tones (way better than the Panasonic FZ20 which I also own). It is a little bigger than I would like, but I can't give up my 10x zoom. No IS though, like its predecessor- my only complaint.

Greg Chappell, how often are you late for work. Well um I had to stop in the field on way here.

I'm usually not late GOING to work, but I almost never get home as early as I could!

I did let a couple of trains go by one morning as I shot a few images of the sun coming up from the platform.

I always have my Canon SD300 in my car just in case I come across something unexpectedly.
