Hi all,

I am looking for a compact camera to back up my SLR and to take on trips when the SLR would be too bulky. As such I would like a camera which has access to PASM controls. The only other requirement is that it uses a proper rotary selector on the camera to access the different modes rather than using a more fiddly system which would be too much for my chunky hands (!)

Anti-shake and higher ISOs would be nice, but they are not a deal breaker.

For info I currently use a Nikon D50 SLR and a Sony W1.

Many thanks

Check out the Canon A620. Not a ultra compact camera but small enough and you can find one for under $220.
