Default Quality comparison between A70 and S230

Is' urgent!
In this week I will buy my first digital camera (before to go on my holiday)

I am oriented in A70 and S230.
I love pocket size camera and quality pics.

I know that both are equipped with Digic processor,

there are relevant differencies about quality pics done with a70 and s230?

(auto use usually)

Thank you.

From what I've seen the main difference between the two cameras are size and features. The s230 is more pocketable than the a70, but the a70 has more features such as a bigger zoom, manual controls etc. The image quality should be pretty much the same so I'd suggest going to the camera store and trying these out to see which one suites your needs better.

thank you very much!
If a70 was with pocket size, I would surely choose it.
I see some test images and it results that a70 is better than s230 in sharpness and photo in low light conditions (using flash too).

My A70 fits really easily into my front jeans pocket. Just make sure you don't have anything else in your pocket as you may scratch the LCD cover.

I keep my wallet in my front pocket, and it fits between my wallet and my pocket just fine, maybe a little snug.

Also, make sure to keep your string hanging out of your pocket so you can wrap that around your hand first to avoid dropping the camera.

A very happy Canon A70 owner,
