No, but I would like to. After traveling thru Europe these past couple months, there have been numerous times where I couldn't take my slr so the p&s would come in handy.

Coolpix 4500, which does 28-85mm equiv, Great for propping, and the wife uses it in "no brainer" mode.
Also Olympus 720AW which is good under water to 10 feets!
Wet and Cool!


HEY! HO!

Yes...a few of them. One doesn't get used. It is a 5 year old Kodak. My wife has one; Casio Elixim 660 maybe? Great little camera. The other is another Kodak 5 MP thing that my 5 year old has latched on to.

ALWAYS carry a P&S as a stand-by; or for the wife to use alongside whatever we're doing - just in case of any problems...
Did have a Pentax Optio 450...
Now have a Panasonic Lumix TZ3.

IXUS 750... Slip it in my pocket, even when out shopping with my wife... You never know what opportunities you might miss if you don't have a camera with you...

after lugging the 30d and a couple of lenses around Disney, I decided on all other family outings a point and shoot would work much better. I got the S3 IS with a 430mm equiv reach, so it has great range, has movie mode, and generally works better in a fanny pack than a camera bag that you have to watch like a hawk.

I have a Nikon coolpix 4300 which I bought online 4 years ago for around $350. It is a 4 MP camera. If I had known as much about cameras 4 years ago as I do now- I would not have purchased this camera because the LCD screen is very small at 1.5" and only has a cheezy 3X zoom and you have to wait 13 seconds before you can take another picture. And nowadays- 4 MP is a low end camera.Once you hit the holy grail of 6 MP- that should be a starting point when purchasing any camera.

Canon S30 - a truly classic point and shoot camera - back when it was unheard of - this little baby goes up to ISO800 and its fairly low noise at that point. It has the same size sensor as some 5 and 6 MP cameras, but its only 3 MP......those large photosites have some room to breath and create some just stunning photos.

I have a point-and-shoot that I usually keep with me at all times, since I have been in too many places at too many times when something dramatic happened and I found myself wishing I had a camera around (among these events were the Tiananmen Square incidents of 1989, the putsch against Gorbachev in Moscow in 1991, and numerous other political events all over the place--and I'm neither a journalist nor a diplomat!). So I now have a Canon IXUS800 that I bought recently to replace an older Canon SD400 that I managed to kill, which in turn replaced an even older Canon that I now use only for underwater shots, since I bought a housing for it a few years ago.

I also find the point-and-shoot useful when traveling when I want someone to take a picture of me and my partner, since strangers are not usually capable of using an SLR effectively and while I'd be upset if someone ran off with my IXUS, I'd be apoplectic if someone ran off with my 5D...
