I have been looking at the Sony W-1 and thought I had mademy choice but I keep thinking about the Casio Exlim Pro 600 and Pentex Optio 750z. I think what attracts me to these two cameras are size and look and they are listed on Steve's best camera site.I am looking for a camera that is easy to use, very compact, and takes great pictures at parties, vacations, family gatherings, etc. Please help. Should I stick with the Sony W-1 (even though it is not listed on Steve's best camera site) or consider one of the other two?

Of the three listed, I would go with the W1. It's a great camera, especially when you consider the price. Great pictures, reliable, fast, large Screen, what's not to like? The only reason I see not to go with it would be if you want more manual controls, which opens up a whole new box of questions.

Best of luck with your search!~Jack

I don't have the W1 but I like it too. I think it is one of the best cameras when you consider its price. It is placed nicely between the compact manual-oriented cameras, and the size oriented ultra-compacts.... only downside is higher cost of Sony Memory Stick Pro...
