I'm having a tough time choosing between these 2 cameras. I think the Cannon is probably the better camera, but the SP310 is $50.00 lower.Is the A540 worth the extra $? Any opinions or advice is greatly appreciated. Thanx in advance.having a hard time choosing

I you read the reviews of the Olympus Sp-310 you will see a camera that is not only very slow--slow to startup, slow to take the photo, and slow to store the photo, but it is a camera that after reading the specifications, you have reason to expect more. However, that just does not, rather unfortunately, happen.

In contrast, the Canon A-540 has received great reviews. both from the professional reviewers and a legion of very enthusiastic users. Here is a link to the A-540 review:
