Good Size

One Fujifilm FinePix S4500 owner who reviewed this digital camera thought it was compact.

Chart Edit

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 14MP digital cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the FinePix SL240, or the FinePix S4200 ($558.78) both from Fujifilm.

If this bridge camera digital camera megapixel count is too low for you then you might also want to look at the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ30 ($174.95) (16.1MP and cheaper) or the Canon PowerShot SX500 IS (16MP and higher rated), or the Fujifilm FinePix S8600 ($149.00) (16MP and higher rated).
