Hi all, I'm reding lots of reviews to help me decide what camera will be the completion to my canon d.rebel xt. I need something pocketable with:
- enough manual control
- good video and audio recording
- >= 6Mpixel
- optimal image quality
I can't find the right solution, reading the reviews it looks like any camera misses something.
Anyway, the candidates are:
- casio exilim ex-z750
- casio exilim ex-z850 (better than 750 for noise but worse for movie recording)
- panasonic fx-01
- sony p200 (a little too large but everybody says it's great)
Any hint?

From another thread on this site: check out this site:

Ken really likes the Casios, and has a lot of good advise on many photographic subjects.

I had pretty well dedcided on a Casio 750, and this site made up my mind: I want as small as possible with an optical viewfinder and as many controls as possible, so I just ordered one. Wish the tiny Casio 500/600 line had the viewfinder & as many controls!

I looks like you are doing commercials for ken rockwell, this is the 3rd or 4th post I have found this morning touting that website. Just a hint. We try to stay away from commercials on this forum. Don't be surprised if you find some of the posts removed by the Moderators.

Sorry - not posted as a "commercial" - just that this guy makes a bit of sense - your other post in response to me says you think he's kinda' "commercial", also - I hadn't detected that - got the address from a post on this site.

I just am trying to help, and it was nice to see some things which appear to me to make sense.

I have long felt that small cameras are the way to go, starting with my travels with a 35mm Olympus XA, and an SLR. After several trips where the big SLR never got used, I began taking only the XA - and now tiny digitals.

Thanx for the "Heads up"!
