    would it matter if i can't fit in your pocket?
    The finpix cameras are nice bits of kit but they are a bit to bulky to just put in your pocket and some run off AA batteries.

    I'd stay clear of any camera than runs off AA batteries. They will eat them and you spend most of your time changing the batterys.
    Even with 2800mha or LCD batteries they dont last as long as Ni-MH batteries.

    Does zoom matter?
    Bridge cameras (the finepix) has really good zoom over normal compact cameras but then they are biggern but if thats not an issue a good budget bridge camera could be good.
    If it is an issue some of the higher end compact cameras have the option for attachment lenses. They will increase the zoom or widness or the lens.
    so you get close to best of both worlds.
