Default which digital camera should I get?

Kodak DX3600

looks pretty good, but they make it sound like u need a easy share dock, which is 80 dollars, which is :down:


2.2 megapixel sensor creates 1800 by 1200 images for prints at sizes up to 8 x 10
2x optical and 3x digital (6x total) zoom lens with autofocus
Included 8 MB internal memory holds 12 images at default resolution; expansion slot for optional CompactFlash card
Uses 2 AA batteries or 1 CRV3 lithium battery; disposable batteries included
Optional Kodak Camera Dock simplifies image transfers and battery charging

Powershot A40

this one is the one Ive been lookin at for a while now, great design, and all the reviews ive read said its awesome


2-megapixel sensor captures 1,600 x 1,200 images for prints at sizes up to 8 x 10 inches
3x optical plus 2.5x digital (7.5x total) autofocus zoom lens
Included 8 MB CompactFlash card holds 12 images at default resolution
Automatically connects with Macs and PCs via USB port
Uses 4 AA batteries (alkalines included)

Panasonic DMC-LC20S

Default Canon

I would get the Canon because it has 3X optical zoom and it takes AA batteries. Were the Kodak only has 2X optical (digital zoom is worthless especialy on only a 2 mega pixel camera.) The Panisonic uses special battery which sucks because a second would be exspensive am sure. But you will most likley want to invest in rechargable Nickel metal hydride AA for the Canon or Kodak with a charger and you will need to by a bigger memory card for any of your choices.
