Re: How about a lens hood instead of a filter?

It will defeat the purpose of having a "pocketable" camera. It sounds exaggerating but I won't be able to put the camera in the inner-pocket of my jacket with the lens hood.

LOL, your right.

my pocket camera has nothing on it. but i think different with a bridge camera or dslr, there i use a filter, hood and cap on many of my lenses. my nikon pocket point/shoot has a built in lens cap so not an issue, i just don't expect much from my point/shoot nikon.......for the most part is shoots fine.

edit, in summation this thing is preference.  only you know how your camera is used.  some protect equipment with overkill, and others do nothing and get along fine.  i do both, so far no problems.
