    I am after a small camera that I can keep in my pocket all the time.

    At the moment I have the Fuji 4700 and the results are superb but if I changed to say a sony U20 would there be a big drop in quality ???

    I only ever use the Fuji in medium resolution 1280x960 ???

    which is 1.3 mega pixel so i dont need massive resolution but will the sony have cheaper lenses, flash etc. ??

    And how much is the Fuji 4700 worth if I decide to sell it on, it has 128meg memory I think, 200+ pics before it is full anyway and boxed??

    thanks guys and gals

    I will keep the Fuji and get the sony as a second camera if there is going to be a big drop in quality.

    so why don't you get the U20 and compare the quality before deciding whether to keep the fuji?

    I have a U20 as a second camera and I'm pleasantly surprised by the print quality. Its slightly lower res than my old camera (Sony 505v), but you don't really notice on the prints.

    Plus, its absolutely tiny and starts up in a couple of seconds, so its really easy to keep in your bag when you're out and about.

    Hi Richard

    My wifes parents have borrowed my Fuji to go to Russia with this week and I am meant to be putting my vaio laptop on ebay, obviously wont sell without pics, so I feel I am left with no alternative but to buy a U20 tomorrow ;)

    I love vaios, I have a Z600 and couldnt do without it, however I am going to have a go with one of the tiny U series vaios, cant try one out round here as no one has them.

    I am a bit worried that I may not get on with it and have to try and track down another z600 again, love the metal casing on the z series, because the one I have now is mint, just been replaced by sony, I dropped it and my insurance company sent it back to them, and it came back with a new everything apart from the bottom half of the case, which will help me sell it :)

    I'm loving it too. Replaced a desktop with it, and got all wi-fi'd up. Much more approachable for the missus and more power than the old machine anyway.
