Hi

I want to buy a new camera soon and I been doing some research.I am looking at these4 models:

Kodak 7590

Sony H1

Sony f717

Canon Powershot S2

The Kodak is the cheapest following the f717 (used), Sonys F1 snd then canon's S2.

After browsing in the forum here I think I will go with the F1. Do you all think it would be the best choise?

Thanks Dave from Germany

I've always loved my DSC-F717 and have used it mostly for taking pictures of items I've sold on ebay, recently I made my DSC-H1 my most used camera because of less lens distortion and better color accuracy than the F717. The image stabilization is great for lower light/slower shutter speeds and the 12x optical zoom is very useful.

I Can't recomend the kodak - Had two of them and they both made strange noises like there was electrical shorting inside. I took the first one back and exchanged it, but the second one had the same problem. Kodak could only suggest buying different memory cards, battery, etc. Spending more money didn't appeal to me so I just returned it. The proprietary battery is another bad thing - too expensive.

I got the H1 instead and I am very happy with it. The canon also looks like a very nice camera.
