Here is what we've narrowed it down to:

Canon S410

Casio Z40

Kodak 6440 w/dock



Have read the reviews about each. This has turned out tougher than we expected in choosing. Appreciate all input. Thank you in advance

We recently made a similar choice to yours and ended up picking the Pentax Optio S4i instead. Here are my comments on each model:

Kodak 6440: very good but bigger than we wanted.

Canon S410:small and sturdy with excellent photos but too heavy for us.

Casio Z40: small and light with excellent battery life and large LCD screen but does poorly in low light conditions such as indoors.

Pentax S4i: very small and light. Now has charging dock and larger screen like the Casio Z40 but does much better under low light conditions.

Thank you for your reply. Will do some looking at the Pentax today but after spending the last couple weeks just narrowing it down to those 3, the last thing I want to do right now is add more.



But, I will seriously look at it today. Found a couple on Ebay just now but they don't say anything about a cradle.



Anyway, thanks again. Have a good day

Unlike the Optio S4, the Optio S4i definitely has a charging cradle and a bigger LCD screen. See the following for information:

We have a S4i and have been happy with it so far. See my post in the Pentax forum on where to get one for $319.95.
