Hey, need some advice on these two cameras(canon a85 and s200). A family friend is offering to sell me either one, as he has no need for both. He lives across the country, so I can't really test the camera's out. The price is about the same, the A85 costing a bit more($10-20) and the s200 being a tad cheaper and coming with a 256mb card.

Im not looking for anything proffesional obviously, but i'd prefer to get the camera that develops and produces better quality pictures and has some decent features. Video recording is a non-issue as I won't be using that feature. Also if anyone could give me an idea of what I should be paying for either one of these camers in used but perfect condition that would be great. Thanks.

The A85 hands down is a much better camera it has 4MP Vs. 2MP.A better lense & its much faster.Hes giving you a good price. Enjoy!
