Canon. oh why...
Why do they release so many cool models.

Im in a really hard thinking now witch one i should get.

Canon Digital Ixus 400 (S400)

Canon Digital Ixus i (SD10)

or Canon PowerShot A80

I like them small and compact but i dont want to loose to mutch quality on the pictures.
Ixsus 400 is the alloround camera, its compact, its good quality and have zoom. Ixux i is so small and nice looking, just the look of it makes me wanna bite it :D. The a80 isnt so nice looking, i like the form but its some sizes bigger but i guess it has the best quality.

As you see, there is so many and i can only choose one =P

Please help me..

If you care about image quality, forget the SD10. Not that it is a bad camera, but it has (a lot) less manual controls than the other two (and also less optical zoom if I remember the SD10 specs correctly, I do not own one).

Because size is a factor for me I bought the S400 and I am very pleased with it.

On dpreview I found a user review of someone that owns both a S400 and A80:

Bottom line conclusion when I read that is that there is not a big image quality difference between the two (actually the reviewer liked the S400 slightly better).

Hope this helps

Sems to be just what i want. Compact and good quality.
