Default Kodak DX4530 or the Sony P72 ?

I currently am using the Sony P72 3.2MP and have noticed that Best Buy had dropped the price on the Kodak DX4530 to $349 which is only $20 more than what I paid for the Sony P72.

I'm wondering which is the better camera? I know that the Kodak is a 5MP camera but was wondering if the pictures would actually be THAT much better than the Sony that I'm presently using.

If you could provide me with some feedback I'd appreciate it. Especially if you have happened to have used both of these cameras. Unfortunately this website doesn't have the DX4530 reviewed

Hi Tremens,

I can't tell give you a comparison, but I just bought the 4530 a few days ago, and I LOVE it! The pictures are simply AMAZINGLY clear. Everybody's being wowing when seeing them on my laptop. I've been able to zoom in on pictures and save them as separate pictures which stay nice and sharp.

pros: (that I can think of right now)
great pictures
video w/audio
1.8 inch screen.
32 mb internal memory.

cons: (that I can think of so far)

takes 5-6 seconds to start up
few manual controls.

Any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks for the replies everyone. I suppose I'll just hang onto my P72 a while longer. It had a few features that like happen to like better than the kodak and the only plus I could give the kodak was the higher MP.

The items that made me decide to keep the Sony were:
1- Came with a nice charger and batteries
2- Able to record a movie in 640x480 16fps
3- The length of the movie is only limited to the memory card installed. I have a 128mb memory stick and can record about a 6 minute movie.
4- Movies are in mpeg vs quicktime
5- Sony had a better "feel". Not as "plasticy"

But again, thanks for everyone's reply.[/list]

Just so you know, the video in the 4530 is also only limited by available memory. I had several pictures and about 3 1/2 minutes of video on just the internal 32 mb...
