Default Need help choosing between Canon and Nikon

Can anyone give me any hints for or against choosing between the Canon Powershot A70 and the Nikon Coolpix 3100. At this stage I'm leaning towards the Canon.

this should help your decision a little. But i suggest trying the cameras out and getting the one that you like better.[/quote]

If you want to be able to have some creative control over the images or feel you may wish to in the future there is no comparison - the canon wins hands down. It has more manual controls than you can shake a stick at BUT you can also set it to point and shoot mode that a baby could use.

I have the A70 - feel free to check out some of my pics taken with it at trhe link below (only had a digicam for app 3weeks)

Default Choice of Canon or Nikon

Thanks Ardvark50 and stefank for your prompt replies. I'm steering toward the Canon as it has the flexibility I'm after as well as the simplicity. Again thanks for your input.
