I'm looking for a slim pocket camera for basic day to day use. Doesn't need lot of functions but good quality pictures. Prefer a big LCD screen though. My budget is less than $200 and would prefer to stick to the brands Sony, Nikon or Canon.

I like the look of the Nikon S210, anybody has one?

You might want to look at the Sony W-150. I am sorry but I have not used the Nikon S-210.

Kodi-

In all honesty you would do much better with the Sony W-150. It is only $(US) 9.00 over your budget. If the W-150 is impossible, then consider the W-130, a much better camera. however it is entirely up to you.

I've seen only one professional review of the Sony S730. The verdict is OK but nothing special.

I agree with Sarah that the Sony W-130 or W-150 (or even the less expensive W-120) are much better cameras than the S730.

Kodi-

It is $(US)219.99 complete with free shipping at http://www.dbuys.com. I have purchased from them before and had no problem at all. I apologize that I typed "209" and it should have been "219."

Kodi, if budget remain an issue, then take a look at the Panasonic LZ-8 (Steve has done a review of this camera) it is elling for around $(US) 150.00. It is a lot of camera for its rather small price.

Thanks Sarah, I'm going to go with W150. Been happy with Sony cameras so far.
