Default Canon s400 or Fuji F410

Hi All,

Over the last 48 hours I've searched the web for about 47 hours and realised I wish I had a digital camera years ago, now I can't wait to joing the digital camera world

I'm an outdoor kind of person, like to travel, so an ultra compact is ideal for me the added bonus of little movies is fanatastic. Having gone thru some reviews my final list is a Canon Powershot S400 or the Fuji F410. Most of my picture taking will be point and click, so do you guys reckon that the slightly extra money for the canon is worth it , or is the Fuji fine for a digital camersa novice.

Your advice is much appreciated

a secondhand Fuji 40i would suit, It takes
AA batt's, movies uses SmartMedia (which the digital
photolabs accept [not xd cards ( ] if you wish to
print stuff out on holiday. Also it has an mp3 player
to listen to tunes during the long slog from traveling
from country to country.

The tv out feature would allow any freinds you meet to
copy photos and movies onto tape for them to remember
you by. Nostalgic or what!

It small to so that people don't feel intimedated when you
take pictures of them. some people seem to be offened when
you take pictures of them, my friend nearly got shoot!

Anyway I hope you find what your looking for on holiday.
I prefere to by 'off the net' nowadays as it saves loads on
travel costs / hotel bills, but I miss out on the tan!

The fuji 401 is a 2mp camera (4mp through interpulation). The canon s400 is a real 4 mp camera.

I say it often, take a look at the sample page of each camera reviewe here.

Putting aside the 2mp-4mp issue, though the photos of the fuji were very good, the Canon were much better, IMO anyway.

I'd go with the canon, just for the better picture quality.
