SDIX-

I am making the assumption that these indoor photos will be taken using the camera's built-in flash unit. If that is correct, your best choice is the Sony H-20 camera.

Have a great weekend.

yeah definitely flash needed... and my other cam is a sony(H7, but its dead and I cant find the cherger, plus it is a hassle to carry about)

how big is the H20, cause I was needing something to fit in a girl jean's pocket...

The Sony H-20 is a compact camera. It will fit easily into a jacket pocket, or a purse, but the H-20 will probably not slip into a girl's jean pocket, if those are tight jeans. I just tried it right now and it does slip easily into the pocket of the pants that I am currently wearing. But I am not the kind that wears skin tight jeans.

Good Luck!

The only alternative choice would be the Sony H-10, the camera that the new H-20 replaced. Please keep in mind that both the H-10 and H-20 cameras use a proprietary battery, so you also will have to allow time to charge the battery.
