I have to choose between these two cameras. They are priced about the same. Whcih should I get?? which would you get??

I don't much about camera's, just trying to get the most bang for my buck.

I am not familiar with the Samsung. But I am now using the Z612 of Kodak. Am very happy with the camera. You might want to do a search on other forums on this camera. You will notice that those using the camera now are very happy with it.

For my money the Z612 is more bang for the buck. I'm a Z612 owner but s1000 is so dissimilar to the Z612 it wouldn't have been on my short list. In 35mm equivalents the Z612 lens is 36mm-420mm; the S1000's 35mm-105mm is not in the same league. The 612's lens is faster ([email protected] vs [email protected]). At 105mm the 612 has only slowed to about f3. The Z612 has optical image stabilization making the long telephoto focal lengths practical without a tripod.

While it is the subject of debate I don't think the 10MP sensor of the S1000 offers any practical photographic benefits over the 6MP sensor of the Z612 given that they are both small P&S sensors. 10MP is simply advertising fluff for the uninitiated.
