    Canon Powershot S500/ IXY Digital 500

    http://www.steves-digicams.com/2004_reviews/s500.html

    Got this camera for my wife over the weekend. She's been asking for a camera for the last 6 months and I finally decided to go get her one. It was recommended to me by my neighbor as he had the same camera. It's tiny and works rather well.

    My wife loves it so that is all that matters in the end.

    Great specs, though the Casio's may be thinner in size.

    Well I read a crappy review on it. But Steve's gave it a damn fine review so I was a bit mixed on it. I haven't gotten to use it because she's taking to school everyday I think she never guessed I'd get her a decent camera. Our last one was bought 7 years ago and wasn't even a megapixel.. Now she has five and I think she's gone bonkers.

    The camera itself is small, in fact almost too small for my caveman hands. So I think the size suits my wife better than me. I looked at the casio and indeed it is very small, but the model they had couldn't be changed from Japanese to English for some reason. They had the Exilim models which are very thin, almost like 3 or 4 credit cards stacked together.. but again it only had Japanese support.

    My dad bought a 4 mp Casio Exilim. It really fits your pocket and seems more user friendly than my GF's Olympus.
