Am looking for ultra-compact, to usefor vacation and be able to carry in pocket.

Need help choosing. Can get Canon SD790, SD870 for same price.

SD850 for $50 less, SD890 for $28 more than the 790 & 870. Any suggestions?

Or comparable in other brands.

Thanks

The Panasonic FS3 can be had for less than $150. It's a very nice, small camera. Perhaps not equal to the Canon SD cameras but pretty close - and much cheaper.

As low as the prices for the SD850 have dropped, I was tempted to get one myself. If I didn't already have acapable ultracompact (Fuji F45fd) I likely would have pulled the trigger. The newer SD designs are not so attractive to me. Instead of those, I am more tempted by the Sony W-series, which also have optical viewfinders.

All good stuff, just let her have a play with them in the store. Even better if it's a store that makes returns easy.
