Guys

I currently have a Fuji s7000 thati dont particulary like, to be honest it has never been out of the house and the main reason for this is that it doesnt fit under the pillion seat of my motorbike.

I used to have a Fuji F601zoom which was a great camera, nice and compact, good quality images and good battery life.

I am looking to sell the S7000 and buy somthing much more compact but with similar specs, my requirements are.......

*Must be reasonably small
*Must be around 6MP
*Must take memory up to or over 512mb
*Must do video clips, up to 30secs
*Must do time delay
*Must do shutter delay, 3 or more secs


Looking to spend up to and around 300-350 GBP

Some people have reccomended to me the following cams

*Fuji F10 - looks great, specs good, no reviews as yet (unreleased)

*Pentax Optio SV - looks great, specs good, good review, cheap

*Pentax Optio X - quirky design, sounds good for crowd photography (i go to gigs alot), reasonable review



Please help me decide which cam to go for,

Thanks

Get a Pentax Optio 750z.

It does everything that you want and a lot more.

Small (pocketable)
7MP
Takes SD memory cards, there doesn't appear to be any capacity limits.
Video 640x480(VGA) at 30fps limited only by card capacity.
Time delay
Shutter delay up to 15 secs.

In addition it has many other features including:

5x zoom
Flip out & twist display.
Really good macro mode.

It is available for as low as about £321 online.
