Default Canon S230 compared to Nikon Coolpix 3500

There is a side by side comparison of the Canon S230 and the Nikon Coolpix 3500 at:


I personally own a Sony F717, however, I am looking at buying a second small camera (pocketable cam.)

Both cameras look nice, although after seeing some image samples at my local camera store, I am leaning more towards the Nikon Coolpix 3500.

The Nikon 3500 provides really good color detail and the images look nice and sharp. The Canon images are not bad at all either though.

Hard to decide with so many nice cameras to choose from :-)

Any specific suggestions from users of either camera would be appreciated.

Default S230 Versus Nikon 3500

I recently returned my S230 due to 2 reasons, 1) too much noise on indoor shots and 2) blurry (out of focus) 75% of the time. While I can't speak for the 3500, others have complained about nopise on indoor shots.
