Pocket camera

I am after a low cost pocket camera
I'd like it wider than 28mm at the wide end and a 10x zoom
I have a Panasonic sz5 which fits the bill but sucks dust in when the lens closes.
Yes there is the have a ziploc bag in the pocket idea but its not a solution for me
Thanks in advance for any ideas

The 10x zoom is a bit of push and often is a compromise on quality. The Olympus TG-2 could provide you with a lot of your needs, in a very "tough" package (no dust problems).

Re: Pocket camera

Thanks
Have been thinking of the TG-2...
But the price is a little high and the zoom a little short
Thinking more of the pocket compact style of camera...
...unless they all suck dust in

Re: Pocket camera

I bought a Sony DSC-H90, from B&H a few weeks ago for $135.00. Wide 24mm - !6x optical zoom. And it takes really good pictures, after you get used to the difference in a Sony and a Canon.
