    Hi Friends

    Please suggest me a good pocketable camera.

    Thanks

    I am using Canon S90, now S95 is availiable, you may look at LX5 too.
    I have used it for travelling and taking night shot with low light.

    You may chk my FLICKR, I hv some shots taken with it.
    Hope I can help.
    Enjoy your every moment with our nature and friends

    All compact cameras meet your requirements. Go to a large shop like harvey norman, courts, etc, and test/molest as many as you can, then buy the one that fits your budget and "feels best" to you.

    I will suggest Canon G12 or Panasonic LX5, or if you prefer smaller sized ones, S95.

    Agreed. Nowadays a decent PnS is very affordable, some are even below S$200.

    I use LX5 in my shirt pocket which is large enough, though some shirts come with smaller pockets. Lx5 should match shirt pocket when buying shirts. Lx5 hangs around neck with laso and inserts camera in pocket and just pulls it out for fast draw and shoot. There is no need to put it trouser's pocket which is mingled with pocket wallet, etc.... troublesome

    Ok. Say is for travel, taking landscape, people. And a bit of close up/ macro.

    Which to recommend?

    Ok lah. To help you decide, I would say go for the LX-5. I have the G10 too but does not use it much as I find it too heavy and bulky. I think the LX-5 would be more convenient and the faster lens would be a great advantage.

    LX5 technically better than s95.

    But you cant "pocket" the LX5...no way ...unless you are wearing baggy pants of the '80s
