got holes, in pocket...

okay, so i'm going to be purchasing a new digital camera very soon. my canon powershot g3 has been good, but i have some issues with it now. i've always found it to be more bulky than i would have liked. i can deal with a bulky camera - say, if it's an slr-style body where i can focus using an actual lens and it has enough heft to give the right feel while shooting - but the g3 just isn't heavy enough to feel right for me.

and on the other hand it's not as small as a point-and-shoot type camera. i feel rather self-conscious when out and about taking photos - it just draws too much attention for my taste.

finally, the pop-out lcd screen on the powershot g3 has gone a little buggy on me and is now working only intermittently. i do not want to have a malfunctioning camera when my new baby arrives. and when i say "new baby", i mean my new MINI cooper s that's due sometime really really soon.

so i'm looking for a tiny camera - something i can slip in my pocket for quick use on-the-go. i don't do a lot of photo printing - most of my pics are just for web publishing anyways, so i'm thinking of just going with the 3.2 megapixel canon powershot sd200 camera. it's nice and small (about the size of a deck of cards), and the price tag isn't so bad (about $300). anyone have anything good or bad to say about this particular model? i have to remember to err on the safe side with this one and actually go and see the form factor of this in person before i buy...
