Default Another Poll !!!!!!! Kodak 6490 VS OLY 750UZ vs Canon S50

I think I have it narrowed down to those three. If there is something else in that price range that is worth noting please feel free.

Kodak 6490 (10x zoom)
OLY 750UZ (10x zoom)
or
Canon S50 (3x zoom)

Brings up a common question; what do you want/need? A long 10x zoom or standard 3-4x zoom? Once you answer this question then look at similar cameras in that class.

Then that removes the S50

In the long zoom catagory I to narrowed it down to the DX6490 and C-750 as well.

Here are the main differences I found between them:

1. The C-750 has a more common hot-shoe for external flash, the DX6490 has a PC sync terminal.

2. Shutter speed range is 'slightly' higher in the DX6490 (1/1700 sec) C-750 (1/1000 sec).

3. Big LCD on the DX6490 at 2.2" 153,000 pixels compared to 1.5 " 110,000 pixels on the C-750.

4. The DX6490 uses a proprietory battery and the C-750 uses AA type batteries. Do not let that sway your descission. The 1700 mAh Li-Ion lasts an extremely long time. I managed to take 300+ photos (filled my 256MB card) and the low-batt warning did not even show up.

5. Not sure if the C-750 has this or not but, the DX6490 'knows' if you are shooting portrait style and flips the picture for you - a bit of a time saver if you shoot in portrait mode.

Here are some examples of the DX6490: http://www.juetts.com/DX6490
