    Hi all, I currently have a 350D with various lenses which is of course great, however im looking around for an ultra compact high quality digicam I can take everywhere with me, something that will easly fit into my pocket and I will not notice its there and produce great image quality, what can you guys recommend? iv seen some fujifilm ones in various places for about 200, what you guys reckon?

    Fuji F10 or F11 would be great. You could also look at the Panasonic range with the Mega OIS. :)

    yeah ? they look ok, poss a little bigger physically than thinking of, trying to get smaller than say 55x90x19mm physically, like the Z1, or are there better than this outthere? really going for slim compact design

    Check out the Sony T9... tiny, generally decent picture quality and has optical IS.

    If you won't be needing high ISO performance too much, then the panasonic FX1 is a very interesting one too... (28mm wide end, optical IS again)

    how about the pentax optio s6? measures at 85,5 x 53,5 x 19 mm. My mate just got one and it looks like a nice camera.

    good suggestions here :) really tempted by the fuji film Z1 5mp, only £145, measures 55x90x19, also the pentax one looks good
