Newbie here. It's time to replace our old Pentax Optio555(5MP) and I plan on buying one in the next few weeks for my wife's bday. Most pics are taken of our 3 kids, usually in aquick manner and always in auto mode. P&S is the way to go with all the stuff we always lug around with us.

One problem I've had though is indoor shots at the kids school events. I know I shouldn't be 20ft away but sometimes that's the closest I can get and our pictures are always very dark with the flash. I don't know if it's the older camera or if that's just how P&S are when out further than the typical 10ft range.

For my price range, I've been eyeing the Sony DSC-W90, although the Canon SD-850IS looks nice with its 4xZoom, as my wife is always zooming. But I don't know if that justifies theprice. Any thoughts on these 2 and is one better than the other for my low light indoor requirements?

I think the Canon is a better choice...

3x vs 4x zoom and I believe Canon has better image quality and more futures...
