Considering mainly the image quality which do You advice ?

Many thanks.

I've never tried an A520, but I have used the other two you mentioned. The S410 has far better picture quality than the SD300 (or SD400 or SD500). If you need a small point and shoot camera, I think the S410 is about the best.

The Ixus 430 is no longer available and now I've to choose between Ixus 30 (SD 200) and A520. As style I prefer Ixus 30 but it has "only" 3 mp and much less functions than A520.
However the most important thing, for me, is the image quality.
Under this aspect which is the best ?

P.S.: I will not print large images...

As I said, I don't know the A520, but maybe this information will help:
