I will be using the camera to take everyday-like photos (indoors and outdoors) as well as occassionally for use on vacation (maybe twice at the most) and whatnot. I am looking for a camera that I will be keeping for many years to come. I will probably only enlarge one or two photos during my time with the camera and otherwise will not be enlarging any photos greater than 8x10 if even so. I do not plan on using any complex/manual? features, since I don't really know how to anyway.
I am leaning more towards the Casio EX-Z30 and Canon SD300 because I think the small size and light weight would help when I'm on vacation or simply carrying it around.
But then again, the Casio QV-R51 and Canon S500 are still relatively small in size, yet produce better image quality overall, which may come in handy since I will be taking so many pictures with it.
I'm unsure as to whether I should look into getting one of the first two, or one of the other two.
Any advice or suggestions would help. Thanks!
