Digital cameras continued...

Heh. I think if I had the money, I'd buy a Sony DSC-P1, which is an ultra-small camera, for day to day use, and then either the Sony DSC-S85 or the Nikon Coolpix 995 as my "events" camera for when I needed the higher quality. Most likely the 2nd Sony, since I'd already have the setup and software loaded for the first, and since it's got better image quality than the Coolpix. Total cost: Oh, around $1600-1800 including the memory sticks, hehe. NO PROBLEM, right? ;)

Actually, for less than $600 (I've seen it for ~$550 I think...) the Sony DSC-P1 is an incredible camera. Look at these shots: http://www.dpreview.com/gallery/sonydscp1_samples/ .

The camera itself is 4.5 x 2.1 x 1.7 inches, and weighs 8.8 ounces including the battery pack. That's less than half the size of a large index card. It's smaller than a small index card. And it weighs half a pound including the battery... but still turns out better pics than the high-end digital cameras from a year ago or even more recently. AND it does mpeg movies. Yikes.

Update: Here's a picture to illustrate its small size.
