Looking at Canon S410/S500 or A80 or possibly Casio EX40 as first digicam. Prefer the S500 size but manual controls of the A80 appeals - does the Casio provide the answer ???

Purpose for general use so needs to be small to carry around. I like to take portrait shots of the kids with blurred background, is either of these small cameras good for this or do you really need a dSLR to do it justice ?

Although the A80 offers much more manual control, does anyone know if you can in practice do most things with the S410/S500 (just needs a little more work) ? In time I would like to get a dSLR but in the meantime don't want to compromise too much.

Any experiences on this and general image quality appreciated
