Make a side-by-side list of each cameras capabilities. See which camera has capabilities the other does not. Decide if any of those unique capabilities may be important to you as you go forward. Once you are at a certain quality point, features (or lack thereof) become more important in the long run.
e.g. range of shutter speeds, ISO capability, available accessories (filters, lenses, external flash), manual settings, color balance under any light source, etc.

Also have a think about end use. The CP4500 has good macro and digiscoping capabilities for wildlife photography.
