|With so many Digi users I was wondering if anyone has feedback. I wanted nice pictures but like the Mpeg feature too. This camera will be used for web quality cycling shots and though I'll shoot riders my pics won't need to compete with Graham W. and the big boys.
I need a little more portability than the Olympus C 2020 I used in the past.

|Use your scanner software to down-save your raw camera shots to a reasonable file size. Uleadphotoimpact is what I use.|

|If you haven't already done so, check www.dpreview.com. They have *very* detailed reviews of digital cameras, as well as discussion forums frequented by a very knowledgable community. Just be sure to use the search engine to check any "this camera vs. that camera" comparisons before you post.
I just picked up a Canon S400 - and it's been good to me for the week that I've had it. The continous mode has let me get some good mountain biking action shots.

|Agree with Brian on both the site (www.dpreview.com) and the Canon S400. Did a bit of research on compact digi cams just for ride shots. Picked up a Canon after reading not only the website reviews but user comments as well. After a couple of weeks, I can't say enough good things about this camera. I bring it on every ride (both road and MTB). I usually carry it in a padded fanny pack around the waste for easier access than a seat bag.
I'll eventually be posting as soon as I figure that out.

|And it's fantastic. 4 megapixel, which is more than enough, and even at the highest quality I can fit 65 pics on a 128MB memory stick. You lose the ability to use more standard media (flash cards) and batteries (like AAs), but the Sony stuff is very compact & light, and that's what I was after. The camera loaded with memory stick & battery weighs in at just over 200 grams.
I also bought a Bento box to house the thing. I didn't want to use my pockets due to the moisture factor. The Bento is almost as easy to get to. I lined it with hobby foam (the kind they use in remote control airplanes to protect the electronics when they crash) and it hasn't missed a beat.
To sum up: I'm very happy with my DCSP9!
