i need your advice people... i'm trying to buy myself a point-and-shoot digital cam that i could carry on me when at work. i don't know how many times i've seen something interesting at work and can't do squat about it because my D70 is sitting at home in the camera bag. i wouldn't dare take the ting to work unless i was going to carry it on me all day and when im working there is no way of doing that.
what i'm looking for is something durable but compact as well, a cam that i could keep in my pocket so it can't really be oddly shaped. i'd rather it be simply square or rectangular. the memory card is not a big issue as i already have the hardware to support SD and CF cards. i would need a decent amount of zoom available as i'd be shooting not only on my ramp but also all the way out onto both A and B taxiways and RWY13/31. the runway is a good 300-400 ft away.

I have been using an Olympus C750 for 2 1/2 years with good results. It has been superceded but I have heard the follow on models also do well. The feature I liked was the 10x optical zoom. I have never had a problem with over 24,000 images I have taken with it.
