All right, so I think I've narrowed my camera choice down to the following:

Canon SD950


Sony W300

I know that I personally don't need all those megapixels, but they both have larger sensors than other P&S (1/1.7"). I'm thinking that if I change the resolution size of the picture to something smaller so that it'd be using 8MP for pictures, then they would be less noisy. I don't know, however, if this would be true in practice?
Basically, my head is telling me to go with Canon (it seems everyone agrees on Canon's quality; it's a familiar brand to me), but my heart is telling me to go with the Sony (i find it to be a more attractive camera and is smaller; it's a brand i've never used before; it's gotten some excellent reviews). Well, they both seem to have received good reviews, although there is more info on the SD950 than on the W300.
My old Canon SD700 took amazing pictures, including in low light conditions. I am looking for a camera to deliver in the same way, but I've heard that the image quality of new Canon cameras aren't up to par.
Any opinions--Canon or Sony?
