I have had my Sony DSC F717 for 5 or 6 years now and I have finally decided to get a smaller digital camera for everyday use. The Sony is 5 megapixels but the optics and the lens are great and I use it all the time for my cover designs. This new camera is small enough to use and while not a big leap in megapixels (this has 6.0) it is well known for really good optics and for taking great pictures for a compact camera. So what did i get? I got a Canon Digital Elph SD700 IS.
See the pictures below. It is tiny!
