You'll get around 100 photos on a battery charge. As for weight, it probably is heavier than some smaller models.

I'd suggest trying any model you are considering in a store to see how it fits you from a size, weight, and ergonomics perspective.

Again, a word of caution, you will have lots of redeye with a small camera like this.

I bought my wife a Pentax S50 for Christmas. She loves it. The camera is very small, lightweight and takes very nice pictures indoors and out. The 8x10 prints from my HP 7310 printer look great. The camera will fit easily into a pants pocket or a compact camera bag you can wear on your belt. Good luck.

well, i own a canon a80, and have used a a95 pretty extensively...

weight is generally a TAD heavier than some other cameras i've messed with, but it also feels a lot more "solid"... like you won't be breaking it easily.

i've also been very impressed with how easy they are to use, and the quality you get in the end. i know printer and paper have a lot to do with it, but using even my a80, its next to impossible to tell the difference between a shot from my nikon fm 10 manual film camera and the digital... unless, of course, its a HUGE picture (bigger than 8x10)

just my observations... will they help? probably not, but I tried!
