Default Kodak Z950 or FUJI F70 or Canon SX200

Ok. I am ready to move up from my Kodak M863. My last three cameras have been Kodak. They take great "good/great condition" photos. Low light, not so much.

My budget is $300. I love the Panasonic TZ3 but we take a lot of indoor shots and evidently it does that poorly. The Sony H-20 is too large.

So, I think the best finalists are the new Kodak Z950, FUJI F70EXR or Canon SX200 (the flash does not bother me as I care about photo quality).

I'm ready to move away from Kodak to get the best in class. Please fire away with opinions. Should I consider another camera?

Many thanks in advance.

F70EXR gets my vote. But I am a Fuji owner (different model) so most likely I should be scolded for bias. As a hedge, buy from an outfit that makes returns easy.

Kelly's suggestion of the Fuji F70 is right on target-

It has high ISO capability, a big LCD, and a good flash.If you want more zoom look at the Panasonic ZS1.

That is very true! The ZS1 & ZS3 have very weak built-in flash units. Their forte is outdoors! My #1 choice would be the Sony H-20, but you said that the H-20 was "too big" for you. The Sony H-20 has a gangbusters built-in flash unit.

I have not read any reviews of the Fuji F-70 yet, but www.dpreview.com has some wonderful sample photos posted. I hope that helps.
