I want to buy an ultra compact digicam w/ good quality image especially in low light condition and unlimited video recording...

Ive been thinking of this 2 digicams, Pentax Optio s5i& Canon Powershot SD200/300, which do you think is better in terms of:

1) quality image especially in low light condition?

2) handy and pocketable size?

3) video quality?

pls. need your reaction, thanks in advance!

I have the same question. I want to buy a new small compact camera and I want to know or hear any reviews between the Pentex S5i or the Canon Power Shot SD300. Please help.

All I can do is WARN YOU that the SD series from Canon produces far lower quality images than their other cameras- although they are slim and fast to startup, it's at the price of a poor focusing mechanism AND noisy images. I made the mistake of getting the SD300- a huge error except for family snapshots. I strongly advise that you avoid the SD series and instead look at Casio or Sony for small cameras. Otherwise the S series (S70 etc) though slow and a little bulkier, give much better images.
