Please help me with my decision



I realize hiow the pixel rating work and everything, but don't know much about digital Camera's. I have been wanting one for a long time, and am going to this year's United States Grand Prix at Indy and so I'm wanting one now. I have narrowed it down to these two Camera's.



The S500($500) has the digic chip, and foucu technology that focus on the item, not on the center. But the Kodak DX4530($299) has their "Color Science Chip", which from their literature seems to be their version of the Digic chip, and the Kodak also has the tech to focus on the item, not on the center with multiple focus points. The man advanages of each, as I see it is that the Canon seems to have a better reputation in DC's, and the Kodak can record a movie as long as it's memory permits(up to 60 minutes), while the Canon can only take a few minutes of footage. I don't need 60 minutes, but it'd be cool just to have the ability.

Althouh I don't knowmuch about Dc's now, I'm willing to learn, and am wondering if the 200 price hit for the canon is worth the extra manual features also. Thnaks in advance for your help!
