Default Best "Small" Camera under $300

I'm looking for a camera to buy as s gift under $300. The catch is that the camera must also be quite small so that it fits in a pocketbook and is easy to carry around.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

The Sony DSC-U20 falls into this category; small, easily pocketable, and just under $270. It is very easy to use, and produces quite respectable images for a 2-MP P&S camera.

I really enjoy mine.

The Olympus D550 would be an excellent camera in your price range. 3mp and 3X optical zoom.

The Fuji a303 is excellent too. Can be had for $245 online (that's how much I bought it for for cristmass present to our bestman). Retail is $349.

Awesome quality, 3.2mp, 3.2x zoom.
