Need advice on buying an ultra compact cam ... for low-light environments
Hi all,.

I have an idea is to buy a utlra compact "pocket" cam which I can take with me while going out with my friends to clubs (low-light environments)..

I assume that I will use it in 70% low - 30 % high environments..

Besides that it should be as compact as possible and fit easily into a jeans pocket..

I had a closer look at Casio S600, S770, S880 models ! They seem to be very small and thin (around 17mm) which is exactly what I need but unfortunatly the reviews say they are awfull in low-light envs..

Fujizu F30 seems to be much better in low-light situations but it's considerably thicker with 28mm ....

Thats a dilemma... .

Any has anyone n advice for me?.

Fuji's Z5fd is supposed to be good at low light because it has Fuji's Super CCD-HR sensor, although the sensor size is only 1/2.5 compared to the F31fd's 1/1.7. Note: There's also a newer model, the Z10fd but it doesn't have a Super CCD sensor. However, I don't have one and I haven't tested it...

There's no dilemma, only a choice to be made based on what's really important to you: size or the ability to take (better) low-light pictures. In the final analysis, are you going to be showing off your camera or your pictures?.

Kind regards,Yin..

Thanks for replies gentlemen!.

Yin, my point is not to show off with my camera. I dont give a damn how it looks like. My point is how it fits into my pocket. When I go out to a club I already have my keys, my mobile, my wallet etc in my pockets ... so I am trying to reduce the weight of the assesoires I carrie with me to increase comfort..

So it's concurent criteria here I am trying to match .....

I just saw that Fuji F40 is only 23mm thick ... it might be a good alternative to F30. Any feedback on F40 and night game ? .

The Fuji F50 is pretty small, it doesn't do quite as well in low light as the F30 but F30-f31 are sold out, you'll have a really hard time finding one...

Canon SD870IS. It's real small, and the IS will let you keep the ISO at a reasonable level in less light. No ultra-compact is going to be great in low light, but this will probably do better than most. In good light, it should be killer...
