    want to replace an Olympus FE-210.

    The viewing screen doesn't work for me, I want something with an
    optical viewfinder. Ability to close focus would be good, say to fill
    the screen with something about two inches across.

    I have a good camera for special stuff, I am looking for something to
    leave in the car, to take visual notes, to grab a shot when I didn't
    plan to do photography.

    Something about the same size would be desirable, 3.5 X 2.5 X 1.5
    inches.

    Brand is not important to me.

    Thanks

    Thanks, those were some good leads. SD780 won the contest, ordered
    one.
