    Has to be Compact Flash. Already got loads of cards.
    Decent megapixels
    Good Zoom
    Good closeups, macro
    Small, compact.
    Easy to use.

    Not too bothered about price.

    Any ideas?

    Well you can't have a good zoom and small and compact togather. 3X optical zoom is the standard for compacts. Just too many compacts to list but have a look at the Canon S70, my personal fav.

    If you're talking about ultra zooms, take a look at the panasonic Z series, these are around 10X 12x. There's also the new Canon S2 IS. Ultra zooms wil not fit in your pocket they are the middle ground between compacts and digtal slr's.

    I'm guessing it's just compacts that i'm after as the Canon S2 IS certainly doesn't fit that easy in your pocket.

    I like the S70 and as my girlfriend has an IXUS 430 I know that the quality will be good. Are there any others I should look at?
