I've been looking for a new compact camera that would be ideal for someone like me, who likes to take snapshots on the run, but won't stop for it - especially not during a race.
Finally, after lots of googling, I settled for Casio Exilim EX-Z200, because it seems to be the only one out there that can provide all of the following features:
- wide angle 28 mm lens (with a 4X zoom to 112 mm)
- light weight (about 150 g/5.3 oz. with battery and all)
- H.264 video (30 fps at 640x480), for iMac (via USB to iPhoto and then drag & drop to iTunes, where it can be easily transferred into iPod)
- effective image stabilizer
- large (2.7"), clear and bright LCD display
- supports SDHC memory cards (I've got a Transcend 8GB)
- relatively inexpensive (in case I break it)
- simple design and easy to use.
