I have nothing against any of those cameras, but I would reccommend looking at canon's as well. The SD*** series are compact, high quality, and competitively priced. I have had an SD100, SD400, and am currently on the SD 700. I stillhave all three and they are all great cameras. I think the SD400/450 is an excellent balance of price/picture quality/size, as it is perfectly sized for a pocket. Picture quality is outstanding.

thanks for your answer, but I'm looking for a ultra compact digital camera, if you have a choice what you will take ? ( excuse my poor english )

best regards

The Canon SD700 is classified as an ultra-compact camera.

Without actually having used any of the cameras you've mentioned, I know that Samsung does not have a good reputation in the digital camera world. I don't know if this has changed with their new cameras.

What kind of photography are expecting to use the camera for? Indoors with low light, portraits, outdoors, etc?

First many thanks for your patience and your listening.

It's a digital camera for my fiancée she love photo, and she wants something easy to use, quickly and ultra compact, for shooting outside and inside

best regards

warm regards

The Casio S-600 has received excellent reviews.

but do you think that Samsung S600 OR Samsung S800 are good or bad in comparaison with Casio S600 or Olympus 700

Samsung cameras generally have poor image quality. Therefore, I think they are not good.

I would prefer either Casio model.

You have right I read on Asia Cnet that Samsung camera are VERY BAD only 5/10 mediocre...

And what about nikon coolpix 7900 ?

Besides ultra compact camera I'm looking for a quick camera and fashion and tiny.
