I am looking to buy a small camera to carry with me always in my handbag.I take my 20D for serious pics but dont want to miss the casual shot when out walking.
It must have an optical viewfinder. Above 3mp. Preferably take SD Flash cards. Any suggestions?
Many thanks

Canon SD300, SD400, SD500 ... depending on budget.

Yup - I agree. I have the SD300 and it is a great pocket size camera.

It's bad karma to post the same question in multiple threads.

It doesnt have the optical finder but please consider the Contax U4R 4mp Zeiss lens and has sports mode that allows you to shoot rapid fire until your card is full. I have one and can FULLY reccomend it, my girlfriend uses the older SL300R at 3.2 MP. they are the size of a credit card and fit very nicely into yur pocket, my girl was so impressed with hers she gave her fujifilm S602 to her mother.

they also have a night view and night shoot mode too.

Thanks all for your help. I bought a Canon IXY55 (goes under other names in other places) for $NZ489. It is tiny, 5mp has an optical view finder and so far takes excellent pics!

Yup - thats the SD400 over here. Good camera.
