Default Canon S400 vs Sony DSC P10

Could anyone help me decide ?

Could anyone help me with the pros and cons in relation to eachother? Just from reading reviews and such its hard for me to get the differences other than 1megapixel more on the sony, as this is my first digi cam.

Thanks for any help.

I've read some back with the same questions and think I have decided on the S400. Any objections?

I personally think the S400 is a better camera. It's 4MP 1/1.8" CCD will have a better noise profile at higher ISO speeds, compared to the 5MP 1/1.8" CCD in the Sony.

I'm also not particularly fond of the Sony's metering accuracy. I bought (and returned) one earlier this year. I replaced it with a Konica KD-510z (a.k.a., Minolta G500) that I've been very pleased with (but the noise profile in the Canon S400 would be better than either one).

Thanks. I see it at Circuit City for same price as newegg too which means I can pick it up tomorrow morning instead of waiting for shipping !

Also can you recommend a memory card for this S400 by chance? Like i said this is my first camera I am kind of lost on the differences in them.
