    I have an Olympus FE-190. It's nowhere near great (it actually pisses me off quite a bit) but it was free and it fits in the small pocket of my purse :o

    38mm FTL.


    Your jeans must have some big ass pockets! And Film no less!


    Panasonic Lumix FX-30. Want to bump up to the FX-100 here pretty soon. Don't really care about the megapixels, but the lens looked much better at wide (28mm), which is where I like to shoot alot. :dunno:

    My wife just bought a Nikon coolpic. Antishake, 7.2 megapixals, easy to use. Only about 1/2" thick.

    Ricoh GR Digital
    Sigma DP1

    both would be awesome as a carry around camera too...28mm fixed lens on both...the b/w option on the ricoh is badass too

    ordered:
    panasonic dmc-tz3 for mom
    canon sd900 for step mom

    both are pretty sweet, though the pana has 10x optical in the same form factor :bowdown:

    Those panansonic cameras everyone here on AP brag about suck really bad...

    Brother bought one and I must say it was the worst camera ever.

    My older sony DSC-W60 takes way better pictures...

    The low light functionality of it :greddy: such noisy nonsense...very gimmicky.

    To each his own I totally prefer Sony or Canon when it comes to P&S cameras.

    i've used and sold them all. The early panasonics had some reliability issues, but quality and performance has been there since day 1.

    sony :greddy:
    quality is meh, prices are high and propreitary memory :greddy:
    not to mention propreitary accessories :greddy:

    Canon is fine, but 10x optical, IS, more controls, wider angle of view to start and 3" lcd in the same size form factor ftw
