Default Nikon Coolpix S630 or Canon SD980?

Both seem like very good options.

Nikon's +:
7x optical

But how about image quality? flash? video?
can't decide!!
what do you think?

thanks in advance.
best regards

nachoba-

Just read the reviews. The S630 is worse than the SD-980, but they both suffer reduced image quality, and have tiny, weak flashes. The Sony H-20, and the Panasonic ZR-1 remain the better choice with clearly better image quality and video. The ZR-1 is still somewhat hampered by a weak built-in flash unit.

yea. i agree. H20 does better indoors, but at a cost of size. the zr1 is a great performer as long as you don't get too far away when using flash. either will do better than the aforementioned cameras.

Thanks for your responses. Finally I decided to take some risks and bought a Canon S90.
I saw some pictures taken in flicker and the camera is amazing. Still portable, though more expensive than what I wished. But the difference I think will pay...
I will get it in the afternoon.

best regards

Just got it today in the afternoon.
The camara is really nice. Smaller than I've expected (good news!).
It's kind of "plastic" -as I read all over- but doesn't look like it's going to crack. Seems solid to me. The quality of pictures is impressive, and I'm still just begining.
I will post some pics, once my toying with it is finnished.
thanks for your advice and patience.

best regards
