I would like to buy camera that will fit in shirt pocket,with viewfinder,rechargeable battery,like sd memory but not a must, mp size not as important as price sence have good camera now but too large to carry at all times.What models are on market that fits most of these specs?Starting vacation soon and would like to get one ordered.
Thanks

Well the Casio Z750 and Z120 fit the bill 100%. The Olympus SP 310 and SP 350 fit the bill, but use XD chips/cards.

the only compact with viewfinder i know is sony cybershot W series. i have a w50 myself. its an inch thick, so depending how comfortable u want it in ur shirt pocket... I liked the casio's Z series thinness, only about half an inch thin, but no viewfinder.

That class cameras are called as ultra compacts.

Some of the Canon's SD-serie and Casio's Z-serie ultra compacts have optical viewfinder. Among those Canon SD700 IS has stabilization which would be helpful for low light stationary target shots.

Those might fit the bill but propably not into shirt pocket. (starts to be closer to 1.5" thick)
