    Folks
    I'm planning on buying a pocket sized digital for carrying around most
    of the time. I've short listed the following - any recommendations?

    Fuji F440
    Fuji F450
    Olympus X-3
    Olympus u-mini
    Casio QV-R61

    thanks in advance

    What? No Canon SD20? PHENOMENAL camera--incredible size (you forget it is
    there, even in your pants pocket). I am SUPER happy with the color, the
    performance (no viewfinder? no zoom? BIG DEAL!) and it is super
    efficient. I can't imagine a better size/convenience/price/quality/ANYTHING
    ratio. Easiest camera to handle I have ever handled, and I have gone to the
    stores to compare--you DO have to watch out for camera shake because it is
    so small, but that is true with all small cameras (so I just use the
    consecutive shot feature to take 4 or five in one press), and I DO have to
    edit each picture to maximize black/white point, but with a lens that small
    (and any digicam this size) that is inevitable. Uff da.

    >From your list, I recommend the Olympus u-mini. In my opinion, it is
    the most stylish compact digital camera made. It is splashproof which
    is great if you use your camera at the beach, skiing, etc..

    There's a good review of the u-mini by a photographer at:
