Default Best compact below 100 Euro

I want to buy a compact camera below 100 euro.

I have shortlisted only these models after several hours of browsing and am interested in knowing which of these would be the best buy: Fujifilm AV100, Fujifilm AX200, Samsung ES25 and Canon A495.

The biggest deciding factor will be the quality of the photos in all light conditions, and battery life.
Could you please help me decide and give me the reasons for your choice ?

Srprd-

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

The Kodak Z-915(10mp, 10X optical zoom, full automatic and manual controls, video) that has been previous mentioned, would be a very good suggestion. The Canon A-480 (10mp 3X optical zoom video) is another very good camera in that price range. Usually it can be found for a lesser price than the Canon A-495).

Wondering how good the A-480's image quality is? Please click on the link below:

If you are wondering about the Kodak Z-915's image quality and high ISO capability, here is an indoor Z-915 shot.

Where in the EU are you. Kodak is no strong in certain parts of the EU? So if you need support. It might be a concern.

I know sarah, just wanted to point out that the op look at kodak support in the area he lives in. That is all.

Canon camera are pretty much everywhere in the EU. I live in the Frankfurt area. But there is only oen Kodak dealer listed on the kodak site. And it is a decent size city. You can get them at the Saturn's or MediaMarkt. But they do not carry that many kodak cameras.
