      I would buy the Nikon, you know they make quality products and they been making camera for a long time.

      If you can spend a little more money I would suggest the Nikon D50.

        Get the Olympus SP 500 UZ. I have 2 of the UZ series and they take fantasic pictures. It is a little bigger than the 2 you have listed here but has gotten great reviews. It also in the same price range. You can't argue with 10X optical zoom compared with 3X for both of the ones you have listed. Comes in very handy for those far away shots. Another feature I love about the Olympus cameras is that they use AA batteries so you can get spares in an emergency.

          Neither. Go for a Canon.

            I have a canon A95 (about a year or so old now), but I liked mine so much, that I bought one for the woman...So I'd go w/ a Canon.

                Got one of both, both quality products.

                My sister (who is a photographer) has just bought a Panasonic lumix (dfx 9 or something) and is thrilled with it, so that's an option too.

                  head over to steves-digicams
                  and read some more reviews

                  I ended up getting the HP PhotoSmart R707 -

                  - Yea I know some of there cams are lame -

                  I also had a HP PhotoSmart 315 before that - that cam
                  was also very good - almost indestructible - just died after
                  5 or 6 years of heavy use - gave it to a friend - and they
                  killed it

                  Plan to buy another HP PhotoSmart 315 as a cam to keep in my
                  glove box

                          I bought a Casio EX-Z750 last summer. It appears to be similar to the S600.
                          Absolutely love it. About as close to a fully manual SLR as you can get from a tiny digicam. The manual focus is awesome, as is the "bulb" (open shutter) option. Bulb isn't long enough for photographing the sky, and the f-stop isn't very large, but overall a very nice cam.

                          Photo quality is awesome! Screw the zoom - when you're taking photos at this res, just photoshop parts of them to fit your 8x10 printer.

                          One thing to take note of with the 750, however - the lense mechanism has a tendancy to jam. If it's in cam mode, and it's in your pocket, and you turn it on, the lense projects and gets jammed - (get the extended warranty). At least, that's what I've heard. It jammed on me once, but recovered. I always keep it in Microphone mode when turned off.

                          The S600 is slightly newer, but read up on the reviews for any warranty issues.
