I'm looking for a small compact digital camera. I own a Minolta DiMage Z2 and love it, but wanting something small for vacations and going out. Please give me some ideas.

canon SD300 or SD200 depending on what resolution you are looking for. they will use SD cards which i think your camera does as well so you can interchange cards if you want to and it is one of the top of the line cameras as far as quality is concerned. it is good at movie mode and is a fast camera in terms of start-up time and focus speed. i have the SD300 and wouldnt trade it for any other ultra-compact out there.

i have some random pictures of action shots and whatnot here...

I was looking for a 3 or 4 megapixel. Thanks for your help. I'll research them.

You may aldo consider Pentax Optio S5i or Casio ExilimZ55 orZ50 - all three of them

are highly ratedby Steve, and on PBASE look at sample shots taken with these cameras and you will like them.... price is within 400 - 500 $.

Hope you will check them out... ALSO , look at Sony dscp100/ p150 ... Great machines !

Sony W1 is my best pick for ultra-compact, if you don't care about manual controls and stuff like that...
