Default Looking for a new digicam

I currently have a Kodak DC240 Digital Zoom camera, and well what can I say, its 1.3MP sucks.

I haven't got enough cash to go for really top of the range stuff, but I am looking at the 4MP range and have been looking at 2 camera's, those are the Kodak DX6440 and the Pentax Optio 450.

The Kodak over here in the UK is cheaper by about 80 which makes me go more for the kodak one.

Then I compare image quality between the two, and find out that the Pentax has the best image qual, due to the lowest compression ratio, which makes me want that one more, but the price over here is 316, but I do like the Lithium battery cell, which the Kodak does not have.

Are there any other good 4MP camera's which come in at around the 300 mark, im really looking for excellent image quality.

At the moment the Pentax seems more appealing as it has the best image qual, a better zoom lens and quite a few more options, but should I go for the Kodak which has the designer lens, slightly less zoom, and fewer features.

Please help...

Many thanks

Michael Graham
