I have a Canon 350D and a Fuji S7000 and I desperately need something smaller for holdiays etc.



I need something that cover the following points:



1. Good zoom 6x optical ideally or more.

2. GOod inside and out.

3. XD or Compact flash as I have the memory for them

4. Battery does not matter but AA would be good.

Money not a huge driver, want the best I can get with the best performance.

I doubt you'll find something smaller than the S7000 that uses CF cards, so I think you've narrowed your choices down to Fuji and Olympus.

Is 'size' the only reason you can't use the 350D or the S7000 for the holidays?

Well in that case I will accept a change of memory format, seems SD is not that expensive.



The reason for dropping the S7000 is all about size. I want a camera that I should in my pocket and go anywhere with, a football match, holidays etc.



Any suggestions very much appreciated.

It doesn't use AA batteries, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3, which has 10X optical and could conceivably fit into a jacket pocket, might be interesting for you. I would also recommend looking at the Canon A720, which has 6X optical zoom and image stabilization and AA batteries. Both use SD cards, which are very cheap.

THe budget book is largely open. Zoom wise 4x would be that the absolute minimum.



I want something with image stablization, very good image quality etc.



Any more suggestions gratefully received.
