Compact camera for back up in field?

10 years 2 weeks ago #92 by Rockin Joe
Hi!

Ok, so I have a Nikon D-80 that get's used religiously. What I don't have is something small that I can stuff in my pocket when I'm on the run. I'm looking for something that I might not mind having with me all the time due to smaller size. But still have some good photo taking perks to it. If I can, I would like to stay under $250.

What do you suggest I look at?

I have a 10.2MP Sony Cybershot for my pocket camera, works great for a back up camera also.

Sony makes a very good compact camera. I would have recommended the same.
