    Default Slim camera, any recommendation?

    Feel like having a slim and small digicam to carry everyday. My Phone camera sucked! Is there any slim digital cams thats small and compact and slim and use AA or AAA batteries?

    Image quality can compromise a bit, as its for record purposes, but must have flash. Purely PnS, auto and focus free ones.

    Any recommendations?

    Check out the latest from Fuji, it's slim and good colour. Manages mixed lighting and low light very well compared to canon Ixus 700.

    i am using casio exifilm s500 .
    very slim as compare to the sony t7
    long bat life close to 300-350 shots.
    then got mpeg4 video recording.
    but one thing is data transfer is troublesome as it only has docking charger/usb transfer.
    means u have to bring the whole dock around if u are travelling ...

    i am looking at Fujifilm V10, Z2 and also Olympus 720SW

    Z2 is cheapest with ISO1600, V10 got huge screen and yet slim, but slightly more expensive

    720SW is most expensive among the 3, but it is shock proof (1.5m drop) and water proof (3m underwater), and 2MP more than Fuji
    We are HDD of PC & FT are MB add to storage;
    so PC never hangs with enormous storage capacity - LKY

    It's all up to the individual on which cam will best suit yr needs. Best is to try out all hands on.

    Handphone cams can never match dedicated digicams.
