Which camera would you recommend:

Sony DSCH9 or Canon S5 IS

Is the Digic III processor better than what Sony has.

Both cameras are on Steve's Best Camera list: http://www.steves-digicams.com/best_cameras.html

Both cameras are good butare abit different as far as features and strengths. Here are some items that are worth considering on both IMO:

S5 - Hot shoe for external flash gives the potential of more versatile (bounce, greater flash distance etc.) operation.

H9 - Nightshot give it a "starlight scope" like low light capability.

Some knowledgeable users report the the H9 lens is a bit "soft" in the last 3x of it's telephoto range (which is longer than the S5 telephoto range) but this is probably still better than attaching a TCON auxiliary lens to the S5.
