Went to market yesterday to pick S5,but came back home empty handed.Somehow i wasn't convinced payingfor it,i don't know what stopped me from buying it.

after going through them i realise that S5 is not the value for money thing i am looking for,
Just checked the results of Fuji s5700 on flickr.com and i was amazed as it costs far less

so friends,what should i do know?what are the great value for money options available in P&S.
Or i should pick S3 it's available .

There's also the Kodak Z812IS. Like the Fuji S700, it gives you great value for the money.

I would just read them for her opinion. Also, I see that it can be had for about $250

Thanks for suggestion,I still somehow convinced for S700 or a canon S3.Just want to ask which of two will give out better results in terms of picture quality for potraits,macros and everday normal pics.
