I have a new Fuji s5200 which I'm very pleased with and use a lot, but I want a second camera that I can put in my purse and carry with me where ever I go. A flock of migrating ducks landed in the parking lot when I was shopping at a local mall--but of course I didn't have my camera with me. What a shame!
Having just bought the fuji my budget is limited. I've heard good things about the Kodak z730--a lot of camera for the buck. Anyone know anything about it, and in particular is it small enough to put in bag to carry around. I don't need super compact but I do need compact. It's a lot more camera than the Nikon, I know, but the Nikon is on sale at amazon for around 150 which is a great price. Any other suggestions for a budget of 200 or less?

Ruth-

I use an Olympus C-5500 as my second camera. It is great and less than $200.

Thanks Mtclimber, but at least so far as I can find the Oly c5500 is about 270 or up unless its for a refurbished one. That's a little more than my budget, although I have heard good things about it. Where did you find it for less than 200?

By the way, you've said that you give digital camera workshops. Where are you located?
