Hello

It's my first post here, so I should probably say Hello
I am going to buy a camera, my first own, so it should be cheap and easy to use. I need little model and I have chosen two: Nikon Coolpix L10 and Panasonic Lumic DMC-LS60. In my country they are in similar price. What should I buy? In first few weeks I will rather use automatic mode, and in future I would like to learn how to and use manual mode

So, which one will be better for me, and maybe I should buy something else in this price?

Pansonic LS75 (better than the LS60), Nikon L14 (better than the L10), Kodak C613.

My pick would be the Panasonic LS75, as it has optical image stabilization, which is very helpful in low light. However, the Nikon and Kodak appear to be good small cameras as well.

Thanks, but:
- What's main difference between LS60 and LS75 ? If only amount of mpixels and LCD, I don't prefer overpaying it. And both LS60 and LS75 have stabilization
- L14 in my country costs twice price of L10
- I have heard bad opinions about Kodaks, my friend has one and its quality doesn't make impression ...

Oh, could You give me some adresses of good and cheap shops in USA, where I can buy camera? $ is very cheap now, so maybe I would make an shipment to Poland

I've bought my cameras at Amazon.com, but I don't know if they ship to Poland. Amazon also has a UK website which may ship to Poland - I just don't know.

The Panasonic LS60 or LS75 are better cameras than the Nikon L10, in my opinion.

So, I will probably choose LS60. In my opinion it's not worth paying extra money for bigger LCD and 1 megapixel more, am I right ?
