S90 or Panasonic DMC-FZ5. The panny is a bit dated, but it has great optics and works wonderfully in daylight. Actually these aren't my "backup" cameras as much as alternatives for when I don't want to lug around the 1D. I usually have the FZ5 in my backpack for impromptu photography fixes.

Before I got a dslr I had a pentax Linux fz28. Excellent pictures from that camera. Not too small though. The g11 looks cool

I'm using a Canon SD780 IS right now because I wanted a very small pocket camera to have with me at all times. Decent camera for the size and the price.

My backup is the camera on my n97, works quite well when I need a snapshot of something.

An old G5. It's old but it's a brick, always works, and takes the same batteries and cards as the 50D. Always in my daypack even when I don't take a DSLR. It looks cool like a classic rangefinder and is great for candids with it's fold out lcd. It was my first real digital camera and I won't get rid of it.

The G series takes compact flash and the 50D battery? I had no idea.

My "backup" is the S5 IS.

I am thinking I may want to pickup a G10 if I can get it for around $350 or so. I loved my G11, but I like the body/LCD of the G10 better.

Not really a back up as much as a snap shotter and camera for the missus/my lil bro to use but I still have my SX10is that I upgraded to the 1000D from.
And I use my Nokia N95 for quick snaps quite a bit when i am out without a proper camera.
