Which cam is better? The Canon S3IS or the Sony DSC-H7?

I'd personally go with either S3 or S5 over H7/H9 based on the independent reviews to date and user posted photos. At this point I remain unconvinced 15x-18x zoom lenses deliver the IQ we current get from 12x zooms.

S3 IS is cheaper than the H7 and H9. Based on the reviews, I wouldn't get the H7 or the H9. I think the older Sony H2 or H5 is a better deal with better specs. If price is the determining factor, the H2 can be had for $229 at Best Buy right now (in store clearance). It is very much comparable to the S3 IS. I like that fact it comes with a lens hood and tube adapter as well rechargeable battery with charger.

Ming is 100% correct-

The Sony H-2 is currently your very best buy at www.bestbuy.com. If you want to save some $$ then head over to www.bestbuy.com.
