Im going on vacation and I want to take a digicam with me. I want to take party pictures and shots of sightseeings with it.

I did alot of research and finaly found those two are the best for me. I want to spend max. €180,- including the 2500mAH batterie's+recharger(€25,-) and 1 or 2 gigabite SD-card or memory stick.(€20-30,-)

Samsung S630 €125,-
0,5Inch larger LCD display
Shoots higher res movies: 640x Sony's max = 320x240
Cheaper SD cards

Sony s650 €129.-
Sexier design
1,2MP higher
smaller
easy controls

Maybe you know some more differences?have expierences with it, or find other camera's in this price-class better? I am hoping to find here some good opinions which help me make my disicion. Thanks!!

From personal experience, I can tell you that the Samsung S630 is horrible. It has serious focussing issues in anything other than bright light, and the IQ is certainly nothing to write home about. Too bad, because my fiancee really liked the idea of having a pink camera...

I eventually got her a Fuji F650 which she likes very much. Can you get a Fuji, Sony W-series, or Canon A-series in your price range?

I think you will like the W55. I bought one as a wedding present for my sister-in-law, and she really likes it. I also have a W30 as my "pocket camera" and it produces very nice snapshots.
