Hello and Happy Holidays.

I'm looking at the above two models. Generally will be used for family photography, nothing specialized. Both the Kodak and Olypus have gotten decent reviews here on Steve's site. (Honestly, I was a bit surprised at the good feedback the Kodaks got.)

I'm also considering the Olympus D-540 or Kodak CX7430 if I decide to try to save a few dollars.

Any help/recommendation is appreciated.

I don't know anything about the Kodak but I have a D580 and love it. In fact my dad and uncle bought one because they were soEASY to use. I just leave it on auto and take picutres. It takes really nice pictures for a point & shoot.

We bought ours at Costco for $199.

The only "con" about the D580 is it's a lttle slow to focus but I think all digitals are.

Well I ended up with none of the above.

I called around and as I should have expected by waiting until the last minute, the selection in the stores was pretty depleted. One place had a few options (and also had Internet access) so I went back to the drawing board and ended up with the Canon A75.

From the reviews here it seems like a good little camera and it should meet our needs. It is only a 3.2 MP whereas the others I was looking at were 4.0MP, but for how we are going to use itthat should not be an issue. It's the first digicam for us so thiswill probably be a good one to get our feet wet with.

Had a coupon for $20 and also got a 128MB CF card thrown into the deal so all in all it wasn't that bad.

In any event, thanks for your feedback.
