Default Fuji S1500/2000 or Canon SX110/200

I'm torn between the Fuji S1500/2000 and Canon Powershot SX200/110.

I mostly shoot pics of my dogs, both portraits and at play. These are mostly outdoors, sometimes indoors. This summer I'm hitting the beach and would love killer sunrise/sunset pics. Other possibilities include fireworks and aquarium pics in addition to snapshots of friends, etc.

What interests me is the panoramic stitching, and creative options.
I probably wont do much video, but would like it just to have.
My budget is under $300

any feedback on either camera is helpful too

Snappy-

I think I might have a really good solution for you. Kodak has just reduced the list price on the Kodak Z-1012 to $(US) 199.95, makig it an excellent value.

You get 12X optical zoom, full IS, both full automatic and manual controls, plus a camera that does very well indeed with pet/family photos. It also does vry well at ISO 800 in existing light conditions. Check it out! Steve gave it a great review, and it is a much better value than any of your other suggested cameras.

Is Kodak better than fuji?

I had a Kodak Z712 and didnt like the IS. It seemed the pic changed after I hit the shutter.

The extra zoom of the Fujis may be an advantage in a few of those killer sunrise/sunset pics situations. As the extra telephoto will give the setting sun a bigger disk. But otherwise I would expect better quality results from the Canons. Plus the Canons have a lens iris, you get to choose from more than just 2 apertures. Whether the new SX200 is worth the extra $$ over the SX110 is not so easy to answer.

I have never had a single problem with a Kodak camera. I also own Fuji cameras as well, as I am a Digital camera Instructor. I feel that Kodak is very comparable to Fuji in the ultra zoom category.
