I'm looking for a new digital camera. Here's what I want. small. like, REALLY small. I want to take it everywhere with me. EVERYWHERE. it doesn't have to be the tiniest thing you've ever seen, but it should fit VERY comfortably in a pocket. more than 3x zoon. I want a HEFTY optical zoom. 4x? (on a small camera I doubt I'd get much more) good battery. The battery's got to last a good while. reasonable time between shots incl. startup time. Excellent image quality. above average red eye and flash (for a small camera I know this is hard to do) good sensor to lens combination. I don't care whether it's a 4 or 5 megapixel, as long as the images come out with little noise. I think that's it. I'm willing to pay for it. The Canon S400 would almost be exactly what I'm looking for. the only thing I think it doesn't have is a 4+x zoom, and good red eye, and flash. I have encountered the Pentax Optio 555 upon reading the net. It's reviewed well at Steve's and dcresource, but I don't trust those places as much as dpreview.com. and there's no review there yet. This Pentax Optio 555 has a 5x zoom, supposedly good battery life, small-ish, although not as small as the S400, but has a cheap look and feel, and supposedly has image quality problems (lots of noise, pincushioning, vingetting, barrel distortion, bad red eye and flash capability). Does anyone have this camera? I'm really curious about HTF opinions. If the picture quality isn't as bad as I've read, it might be a good option. Does anyone else have any options? opinions? onions? comments? Also, I notice that the Pentax, Nikon, and some other cameras are going with SD memory instead of CF or MS. Does SD offer any advantages/disadvantages over CF or MS? I really don't care what card it is, as long as it's not going to be a beta. Cameras I have used and liked recently: Sony DSC-V1 - great zoom, but big, bulky, fingers got in the way of the pop up flash, good red eye, rather confusing menu system (but I didn't use it for long) Canon S400 - as mentioned, small, great feel, but not enough zoom, and relatively poor flash power and red eye. Canon S50 - great camera! would have liked more zoom, lots smaller and lighter. good battery life, picture quality (despite the reviews I read), but great camera for me! Sony Cybershot 72 - no. nice size. Wouldn't mind trying an 8, 9, or 10, but with a bigger zoom, better flash and red eye, amd SIGNIFICANTLY better picture quality than the 72. good feel, again as opposed to the 72. Combine these Cameras for me!
