I can buy Canon S3, but is it worth it so?
price equal
both in perfect condition
The Canon S3 was an excellent camera in its era and is in the same class, (age, price, and IQ) as the Kodak Z612. Equal price I'd choose the Z1012 as I think under daylight conditions for sure the Z1012 IQ will beat the S3.
If it was the S5 vs. the Z1012 it would be a much closer call but even then a new Z1012 has a new warranty and you can't get a new S5.

Okey, one quetion more... Kodak Z1012 is better then Z812?
Someone advised not to take Kodak Z1012 and better to find Kodak Z812, then buy it.
What can u say about it?

A friend offers to buy Canon S3 for 220$. In excellent condition. Warranty 3 months.
- 4 x AA alkaline battery included, and charger for it;
- bug Lowepro Nova Micro AW;
- Kingston 2Gb HighSpeed and Kingston 1Gb HighSpeed included;
- Don't know how to say it... pedestal for camera included. Stand at the foot


Or i can to buy Kodak Z1012. 230$. No guarantees(I live in Ukraine... Europe, аnd I have to do a purchase order at ebay.com). In standard configuration.

If both cameras are used and in good condition, I'd probably buy the Canon. I think it's better built, has a better lens and has better picture quality.

Your English is fine. With your geographic/market situation your choices (I'm glad you included that info) are really hard. I think I'd trust a friend's hands-on evaluation of the condition of a specific camera which tilts in favor of the S3. The included extras also tilt in favor of the S3.
