I would really appreciate if someone could help me.

I need a digital camera for:
- Taking a lot of everyday pictures, but with great quality
- I need sometimes manual controls, specially for Night pictures, but its not that often. And also I canĀ“t use well manual controls.
- I need to print my pictures with 8x10 and sometimes 10x15 cm.
- I have no need for videos, but I wouldnt bother having it in my camera
- Size its not that important, but I really dont want to buy a Sony F717 or 828
- And its a little bit important that after I press the shoot button, the picture to be recorded fast. In other words, a short interval between pictures, without compromising the pictures quality. (well, short interval, not bursT)

So... I have read the reviews and found these 4:
- Sony W1
- Sony V1
- Canon S60
- Canon S70

If anybody could give me an opinion about these 4... Or if you have a better suggestion.
I would like to buy either Sony or Canon.

Sony V1 is the best there IMO... I can't remember how many megapixels it has so make sure it has enough for your prints (8inches x 10inches need 3 megapixels for decent quality)... if you can afford to pay more, how about the latest prosumers like Sony V3 or Canon G6?

The W1 really is in a different class than the rest of your class because of its size (smallest). It doesn't have the manual optins the others offer. However, it is a great camera for it's size. From your description though, I have to agree with Sivaram Velauthapillai, it sounds like the Sony V3 would be best, as it has the nightshot mode.

Best of luck with your search!~Jack
