I have a sony (cant remember model....could be P150) but the spec is almost identical. Macros are doing the W1 similar features but a chuncky case for 199 at the moment.

In truth, I would without doubt purchase a canon Ixus 4/5mp jobbie. They are superb. JF just got one, when i see it in the the flesh I felt gutted i bought the sony.

'nuff said!

This was my choice, Nikon 7900. 7.1 meg, and with a 1gb SD card it'll take nearly 15 minutes of video at 640x480 (30 frames per second) and at it's lowest setting, 160x120 it'll do 1hr 40 mins!
