I'm looking at buying either the DSC-N1 or the W100.

I see that the N1 is abit more expensive, and not that much smaller dimension and weight-wise than the W100, but has a larger LCD screen.
The N1 has some features that I would use, and many that I would not use.

What I'm more concerned about it the image quality.
Does anyone know which would take the "better" pictures?

Any other bits of info. that would lead me to one or the other?

Thanks!

They both have the same lens and sensor so I'm guessing the image quality between the two will be identical. The N1 has some cool features, but I don't like that the huge LCD is unprotected.

iso:

w100: Auto, 80, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1000, 1250

n1: Auto, 64, 100, 200, 400, 800

max shutter:

w100: 1/2000 sec

n1: 1/1000 sec

so, take w100.
