Default Canon SX120 or Samsung WB550 (HZ-15)

I am going to buy new digicam. I'm choosing between this two - canon sx120 and samsung wb550 (hz-15). I don't know, which of them would be the best for me. I mostly take pictures of landscapes, I make portrait pictures and I use it on parties. The most important for me is the quality of taken pictures. So, which of these two would be the best?

Please help...

I happen to own both cameras. Based on my experience, the Canon SX-120 easily wins the head on competition by a wide margin.

"the Canon SX-120 easily wins the head on competition by a wide margin." You mean wide angle? I thought that wb550 is "wider" (24mm on wb550 and 36mm on sx120).

Perhaps English is not your native language? I am saying that the features and the image quality, in my opinion, make the Canon Sx-120 the BETTER camera.

Yeah, I'm rather learning english. I have one more question to you, what do you think about fuji f70exr? Will it be better than canon?

The Fuji F-70EXR is a good camera but it requires constant manual adjustments to get the best photos. Most camera users do not want to do that. I had one and returned it.
