And at 3.8 x 2.5 x 1.2 inches, the A1200 is noticeably larger and thicker than a 300HS, which measures only 3.6 x 2.2 x 0.8 inches. In fact, it's about a quarter inch taller, quarter inch longer, and almost half an inch thicker than the 300HS! So it's really not the same size as a 300HS.

Good grief! The 300HS dimensions aren't magic! Of course the A1200 is not the SAME size as the 300HS. The 300HS is the 300HS -- this isn't. Yet the A1200 is very slim and slips easily into a slim pair of jeans. So do other cameras that aren't the 300HS. Is your point compact size or something else?

And given that these cameras are so compact, there really isn't much need for a molded grip. A bit of texture, or a minimalist finger ridge like on the S100 is all you really need,

Reading the forums, you'll find that lots of people are looking to buy grips for their compact cameras -- they need them. It helps a lot when you have large hands. Probably not necessary for one-handed happy snapping though.
