I am looking for an ultra compact camera. The smaller the better... =) Im not a photographer or anything so i cant tell all those things about the fading in the sides etc that i read in the reviews. I do blow up the pix (usually the b&w ones witha lot of shading)to abt 8x10 sometimes. Pls help! Or other suggestions? =) These are the cameras im considering by whati like best =) On paper, the pentax comparatively looks like the best. And its the smallest too but i take shots with a lot of dark and bright light thanks!

Pentax Optio S6, FujiFilm FinePix Z2, Nikon CoolPix S3, Sony DSC-T9, Casio Exilim s600

If smallness is your thing take a good look at the Pentax S5i. Right now it is a real bargain and takes great photos. I have owned mine for over a year and love it. Here is a Pentax S5i sample photo.

flyingpis-

I am very sorry to say that you are indeed VERY incorrect. The Pentax S-60 is NOT, repeat NOT the better choice, at all. The Pentax S5i and the S5i brethern are clearly the better choice.

um... i meant s6 not s60? since that is the newest?

my issue was more that the fuji one is much better in low light situations... but its huge compared to the pentax... any pentax. i had the s4 so im quite spoiled to the size =p

flyiingipis-

Yes, the Fuji Z-2 will have an ISO range advantage, which is very helpful in low light situations.
