Need Perfect Pocket size PnS OIS more than 6MP less than $301

I am upgrading from My old 2mp oldie. I need it for general use and to photograph products for my website. I want to take low light and out door pics..

I have been looking and reading. So many options I am overwhelmed ! PLEASE HELP ME !.

Here is my wish list in the order of importance..

1. Fit in pocket2. Optical IS3. more than 4x optical zoom4. $300 or less5. 7MP or better6.

Wide angle (could do without).

I know this is asking for the world .. a perfect compact PnS but if I can get close I would be happy..

I like my Samsung A7 7MP with a 1/1.7 sensor..

Pros: Good Image Quality and small size, nice screen on the back and has speaker for movie playback.Cons: 3X optical zoom and flash is week.

Only problem is after I dropped it, 3 ft blacktop driveway. Flash still does not work. Need to open it again..

Good luck finding one. Do what some people do. Take a SD card and a notebook to the camera store and take pictures and notes. Note most cameras put image information on each files so if you right click it and select properties it will tell the camera model and a bunch of other info...

Ricoh Caplio R7 is in the price range but if you can strectch it a little, the Fuji F100fd offers more features and better IQ..

3. more than 4x optical zoom.

Doesn't mean much. Starts wide (28mm) or at 38mm ? How long do you want ? 100, 150mm ? .

5. 7MP or better.

Useless criteria, it's hard to find less but I'll bet that you would be happy with 5 or 6..

I know this is asking for the world.

Not really, this is pretty usual stuff...

Thank You! That is a great Idea! I have a couple of stores in mind and I have a 1gb SD card..

I would rather have 28mm but I would give it up for other features listed but I want closer to 240mm zoom or better (just throwing numbers out there dont know if there are models with those exactly).

Yeah I could be happy with 5 or 6 but they aren't being made as much so I would expect bigger MP.

I don't know if Canon A720 fits your pocket.It has 35-210 mm lens, working OIS, a viewfinder. It has no 28 mm.VictorBucuresti, Romania

Canon SD870 IS. Superb image quality. Quick and responsive. 28mm lens. No optical viewfinder, but does have anti-glare LCD...

Confusing request. In your lead-in you state "want to take low light". And yet in your 1 - thru - 7 priority list you do not show "low light performance" at all! In any event, with a $300 size budget, there should be a camera to keep you happy..

The Canon Elph SD870 sounds about right for you..

Small, wide angle, 4x zoom ( more or less ) and fairly good noise control for a compact..

Actually. I have been looking at the TZ's I am leaning towards either a TZ3 or TZ5. Not interested in the 4 because it's only about $18 less than the 5..

Im just not sure how they will do on close ups of product for my site.Let me rebuild your drill battery..

They'll do fine for closeups. You can crop to huge sizes with more than 6 mp anyways...
