Did you consider the Fujifilm FinePix 2650 2mp 3X optical $190 on Amazon if I'm not mistaken.... Ray..
Have a question about the finepix 2650.. is it as big as it looks? it looks huge in all the pictures i've seen of it, like.. totally nowhere near a size I could have sitting in my pocket for the day =\ like the cannon s200 a lot but it's (unfortunately) 100 dollars more than what I really want to pay.. so that's my question. is the finepix 2650 huge?..
The review on the 2600 gives these dimensions: Measuring 3.9 x 2.6 x 2.1 inches (99.8 x 65 x 53.9 millimeters), the camera's all-plastic body keeps it light weight at just 7.1 ounces (200 grams, without batteries or SmartMedia). I don't know if they are actually comparable. That's smallish but perhaps too large for easy pocketability. However, in comparison to a smallish SLR, that's real small...
Hi, The Fuji Finepix 2650 is definitely worth considering for a digital camera under $200. With a 3x optical zoom lens and 2.1 Megapixel resolution (enough for high quality 8"x10" photos) this is the best digital camera in this price range. Ron.

I have a 2650 and love it. It can fit in a jacket pocket, or even a large shirt pocket. It's not big. It takes great shots, has macro capability. I got mine for $169 at bhphotovideo.com. But it uses xD memory, not Smartmedia.
Battery life is good but it really doesn't matter, you'll buy rechargables for any camera. No one can run on alkalines...
2650 isnt a bad deal, however, maybe consider the Olympus D-520 as an alternative. Dave Watson..
