Default 150 dollar new camera

Hi, i am in the market for a new camera around the 150 dollar pirce point. I would like the camera to be quite small and would also want the best resolution possible. The sony cyber shot s2100 and samsung sl720 seem to fit the bill.

these cameras seem to be extremely new and so i am finding it hard to find good reviews of them. Are these two cameras a good choice, and is the samsung worth the extra $ over the canon?
Thanks in advance for your help

Welcome to the Forum. We're delighted that you dropped by.

Of the two cameras that you listed, the Samsung SL-720 is the better camera. I own and use the SL-420 model and have been very pleased with it.

Amazon also has the Panasonic ZR-1 at around $200.00. That would give you some added zoom as it has 8X optical zoom and 12 mp in a very small physical format.
