Here is my problem. Because of a return issue I have store credit in the amount of $500 I must use within the week (long story). The only cameras they carry are Canon (a personal favorite), Sony, Kodak, Konica Minolta and Olympus.

From these lines available there are:
two Canons: G6 and S70 (...have ruled out the A95 and others)
Sony V3 (ruled out W1 and T1)
PENTAX - Optio 750Z Digital Camera
Olympus- C-7000 Zoom Digital Camera
Konica Minolta -DiMAGE G600 Digital Camera Kit and
KODAK - EasyShare DX7630 Zoom.

I have narrowed it down to the ever popular G6, S70 and Sony V3. This decision has been driving me crazy and now I am down to the wire to make it!

Sharp, detailed pictures with realistic color are important as much as possible for: group, scenery, night and scuba shots(ocassionally). Which camera would you choose?

Thank you very much!!

I'd go with the G6, Ive had a G3 and loved it. I hear the G6 is very good.

Your three choice are good, but I can help noticing that you only choose the 7MP models except the KM and Kodak.

Are these your only choices? Do they limit your choices, or your own personal choices? Can the credit be used on memory cards, batteries, external flash, conversion lenses, etc.???

If you don't print very large prints, then some of the 4-5MP cameras ultra zooms will have better value.

Do try out the Panasonic FZ20/15 or the Olympus C770UZ. They are good value for about the 500 range. (Oops sorry no Panas, what a pity).

If you really have those choices, then the Canon G6 or Sony V3 would be the better choices.
