Default Recommedations for a compact camera

I'm looking for a small (fit in the pocket) camera as a backup to my main larger one.

Pretty simple really, looking for something to fit in the pocket, 10+ mega pixels, fast as you can get fps, and decent image quality. Trying to keep it around $200, but would go $239.

It will be mainly for taking photos of children on the go.

Thanks.

I sure like the looks of the Samsung TL500. A wee bit over budget but given the speed and capabilities, looks like a bargain.

The EX1 is nice but definitely way over budget. At that price point, the Canon S95 and Panasonic LX5 are also worth considering.

Check out the Panasonic ZR1 or Canon SD4000 for ~$270. If that's still too expensive, then I don't have any suggestions off-hand but there are certainly some cheaper models from Canon, Panny, and Samsung in the $200 price range.

Panasonic ZS7 at Amazon Warehouse Deals Used in Very Good Condition: Most are just open boxes and a 30 day return policy, not to mention the ZS7 is an excellent camera for family and trips...video is excellent also...Red is $206 and the Black is $200...you can't lose...
