I would like to have a compact camera to carry all the time. The XT is great but with kids its nice to always have a small, fast camera on hand.

My sony P-52 recently broke so I'm looking for another compact sony. Like the P-200 but spent most of my $ on the XT. Any thoughts on the P-93? Does it have the oversaturated red problem? What about red-eye?
Should I save up and go for the p-200?

Any other suggustion? p.s. Don't care about video

I bought a P200 recently to supplement our Digital Rebel (300D) and the Sony has worked just fine in this role. Especially when considering its price is now in the $300-$350 range. IMO, nothing else out there right now beats it for price verses performance. I haven't noticed a big problem with red-eye either. I'm sure there are other brands that can serve your needs. Just do plenty of research and choose wisely.

It all depends on how much you're willing to spend. The P93 is a great camera for the price. Battery life is good, image quality is excellent and Sony has toned down the color saturation in their newer models.

You can find a P93 fairly cheap now that it has just been discontinued.


Addition: Red-eye is excellent with the P93 since the flash is a good distance from the lens...

Thanks so much for the replys. Maybe I'll go for the P-93 and save the extra $ for a new lens for the XT. This would also be a more suitable camera for my 9 year old to use at times.
