Digital camera

Looking to purchase a small digital camera. Would like it to be small like the Casio Exilim, 4 or 5 megapixels and up to $400. CNET says the Casio Exilim has so-so picture quality. Is that so? Any other recommendations?
Thanks for the help.

Canon sd300

The Canon sd300 has their new DIGIC II processor (the one from their top of the line Mark II) and shoots incredibly fast. The camera can fit inside an altoids can and has 4 megapixels and a 3x optical zoom. You can find it at for $310 plus $12 for shipping. It was a little too small for me (I'm 6 foot 6 with very large hands) and so went with the Nikon Coolpix 5200 (also very small and only $230)

The Feb 8 issue of PC Magazine rated the Canon SD300 slightly ahead of the Casio Z55, stating that the Canon had a better lens.

Looking at sample photos from the two cameras, I do not see that difference.

I would avoid the Casio Z50 camera.
Choose the Z40 or the Z55.
Or the Canon SD300
