Dun get casio.. ;p

Mini and slim usually dun go along with good pic quality.. If u consider middle range should aim for better pic quality right?

u could try the kodak dual lens cam if u want a compact cam.. most probably can get it at cathay photo (peninsula plaza) or alan photo (sim lim square)..

Just my 2 cts worth if u are considering photo quality..

More megapixels does not necessarily mean better quality hor.. just get enough megapixels for your printing needs will do. 5mp will be enough to print up to 8R without losing out much to higher megapixel cams.

Dun be seduced by bigger LCD size as it has nothing to do with the photo quality. Bigger is nice though.. ;)

U should consider Kodak dual lens V570 only if u really really really need the 23mm wide angle. Else, my experience with kodak cam is that interface is not as user friendly and their best jpeg quality still has too much compresssion done.

If I were looking for cams with your budget I'd look at Canon A530, A540, A700, Panasonic LZ3, LZ5, Pentax W10 (waterproof!), ... dun quite like the current lower range nikons and olympus.. ;p
