Default camera buying advice

I am not sure which camera would be the best pick. They are all around the same price, 325 - 399 can. I am leaning toward the Cannon a40. Suggestions?

list:

canon a40 ($399)
kodak cx4230 ($329)
fuji 2600 ($369)
Toshiba PDR-M25 (329)

all are similar, some have audio features. Maybe one or another has noticable picture quality? Is it worth the extra 70 from picking the toshiba to the canon?

thanks

I'd have the Fuji. I used to have a P&S fuji and it was great.

I have the A40 which is very easy to use with multiple features. The price you have listed is high. You should be able to find it for around $250.

the 399 price is in canadian funds which is around 220 us. The a40 seemed to be the best price vs features in that price cat. They seem to be disappearing fast.

oh well i could not find a a40 where i live so i opted for a kodak dx4900. It may not have the features of the canon but the picture quality is excellent
