I just made up my mind to go with the Canon Powershot S500 over the Casio EX-P600 because I compared the shots and I think the Canon has it all over the Casio even though the Casio is 6MP...anyway, can anyone offer an opinion on the Canon Powershot S500 vs. the Sony DSV-W1 which will be out sometime soon (I hope)???

As you already might have, but I recommend that you read the review of W1 in DCRP. It has quite many comparisons beetween S500 and W1.

Main reason I liked the Sony W1 is because of:

- 3:2 aspect ratio

- unlimited HQX movie , 30fps with audio



Canon doesn't have these 2 features. Also, Sony W1 has 2.5" LCD. How big is the Canon's?

the LCD on the Canon is the standard 1.5"...also, I had the Canon S400 and even though the resolution was nice, I think the sony cameras have richer colors. Anyone else notice this?

The sony cams usually have richer colors, but i belive the canon got more "true" color.

Personally i like sonys color better, even if its not the correct color
