Looking for a compact digital camera

by liva608 / July 14, 2005 4:20 PM PDT

I'm looking to buy a new compact digital camera, but I can't seem to find many with the specs that I need:
~uses AA batteries
~uses SD/Multimedia Card
~less than 1.5" deep
~4-5MP resolution

So far, I've only found the Pentax Optio S50 that meets my criteria, does anybody know of another camera so that I have some choice before making my purchase?

I thought there would have been many, but I only found four:

Nikon 5600
Kodak C330, C340, C360

Thank you snapshot2 for your help. I've looked at the Kodak website's specifications for its cameras, and the Nikon website.... but I have decided to get the Pentax Optio S50.
Pentax still offered the most compact model out of the AA battery-powered digital cameras that I've seen and still has awesome features like burst mode, night scene modes, sports mode, and an awesome macro range of 6-50cm (better than my current camera).

But before I go overboard on everything that I THINK will be great about this camera... what has anybody found bad about the Pentax Optio S50?
