Default Advice on small 2Mp Camera

I am looking for a very small camera that still takes good pictures. I have been looking at the Canon Digital IXUS Vē or S200. Has anyone got advice on very small cameras?

Olympus C50 will fit into the palm of your hand. It is 5mp, 3X optical zoom.

I might suggest going to a camera shop and actually handling a few cameras. My first digital camera was a Canon A50 Zoom and I found it about the smallest practical size. It's bigger than an Elph, (which I find awkward to handle).

The small Canons are very solid feeling but for folks with fat fingers, they can present challenges. The up side of small cameras is that you'll be more apt to take them with you and get those pictures you miss when you leave your camera at home.

My old A50 is still turning out great pictures after five years... gave it to my son and his wife when I bought my Powershot Pro90, no lightweight.

Just bought my wife an Olympus D520Z for Christmas. It is small enough for a shirt pocket. 2MP 3X zoom. I paid $188 from buydig.com new with USA warranty. You can't beat it for the price.

I have been searching and found the Kyocera Finecam S3L any thoughts on this model? The Olmpus C50 looked great just a bit pricey for what I was looking for.
