I have 3 dslr's and I use an Oly C-750uz (4meg) for outdoor backup
camera in good daylight. It sure still takes "good' pics for 4meg.

Mine did produce artifacts at 400ISO that 'NeatImage' could not get rid of. Artifacts also appeared at base ISO when I had the audacity to set maximum saturation and contrast at the same time. The following shot I have re-processed time and again, because I cannot repeat it:

Compared to the later SP-550UZ the C-750 produced broad sharpening, which some people clearly like a lot. But that is at the expense of detail.

I take it often when I just want to have a camera with me should I
see something worth taking..It fits real nice in a "banana bag" around the
waist.

So for you the form factor is more important than maximum zoom range. In that case you might look at the Canon SX120IS. It has the same zoom range as the C-750, but 10MP will give you smaller noise particles, and VGA movies at 30fps are bound to look better than the 320x240-15fps movies which the C-750 dished up.

If you can tolerate a flash that pops up regardless, you also might consider the Canon SX200IS.
