Default Which camera would you recommend from these two?

I've posted this in the newbie board but have not received any responses, so I thought I would post in here...

:?: I'm finally going to break down and purchase a simple digital camera...have used 35mm point & shoots forever, and now with a new baby I want to send good quality pics over email and also print out up to 5x7 prints and perhaps an occasional 8X10.

I've researched a number af cameras and narrowed it down to two models (my price range is between $175 - $225)

The Fujifilm 2650 and the Kodak CX4230 cameras are my choices. I've compared these to each other and they both seem the same, except for the following differences:
1. The Kodak has a button right where your thumb normally rests when taking pictures.
2. The Fuji has the ability to make movies (not important for me)
3. The Fuji uses proprietary memory cards $$$?
4. The resolution selections differ from both cameras, although they are close:
Fuji
640x480
1280x960
1600x1200

Kodak
816x816
1184x888
1632x1232

I'm looking for a camera that will take great pictures but simple to use, without alot of bells & whistles. I don't care about the amount of photos a card will hold, as long as I can take at least 20 pictures at highest resolution without having to replace the batteries midstream.

Any thoughts on these two cameras? Which one would you recommend going with?

Thanks.

Just to clear something up, xD isn't a proprietary memory card format...it's a new format to replace the limited capacity smartmedia format. Also, it's used by multiple camera manufuacturers. It will cost more right now because it is a new format.

An example of a proprietary format would be the Sony Memory Stick as it is only used by Sony products.

Actually that's not true. The Konica KD400Z and the KD500Z can use either Memory Stick or SD cards.
