Default Looking for a Digital Camera (first time)

I'm having trouble deciding on what my first digital camera would be. I'm leaning more towards Canon mainly because I have been using a 35mm Canon and my brother also has a Powershot S100.

Although I am open to other varietys. I really like the S400 but the price is still a bit expensive, unless it comes down in the summer time. I want a camera that is under $400 and 3 MegaPixels. I want the image quality to be good and it would be a plus if the camera was compact. What would you suggest?

I have been very pleased with the Olympus line of cameras, and I suggest you consider them as an option. The D550 would be my choice if I were buying a compact digital camera.

What about the canon s230, its an older 3 mp model in the same series as the s400 and should be in your price range. But first ask yourself if you ever plan on using manual. If so, then the whole sxxx line is out. If you want manual control, i suggest trying to find a canon s30, its 3mp and a little more advanced than the s230 but can still be used as a point and shoot.

Check out the Canon A70 or the Nikon Coolpix 3100.
