Olympus Mju II (also known as the Stylus Epic). For me, the perfect carry around compact.

It is tiny, has a good meter with spot metering facility, versatile flash settings and a cracking lens. I've almost never had a bad picture from mine.

Downsides, the 35mm lens is a bit wide for a lot of what I like to shoot, and the flash tends to produce redeye when used for night portraits with colour film.
