Default New Compact, can't decide?

I am after a new compact, I am selling my Lumix and Fuji. I have 3 in mind with different prices all off eBay first 2 manufacturers refurbs the Fuji is new:

Kodak Z915 59.95
Kodak Z950 79.95
Fuji F300exr 199.99

I have see raves on this forum about the Z915 and the specs look good, the Z950 has HD video and a rechargeable battery, now the Fuji is quite expensive and I haven't seen much on here but does look quite sexy!

This will be a camera just for 'happy snaps' as I have my dSLR for more advanced stuff.

Any advice oh guru's of everything camera??????

Which models are the Fuji and Lumix you are selling? It would help give an idea of the quality you are accustomed to.

The Kodak Z915 seems pretty decent for the budget-minded.

The Lumix is a TZ4 and the Fuji is a S8000fd. I want the manual controls of the Fuji in a compact. The Fuji F300exr has a nice zoom length but I think everything else on it may be overkill so I am kinda leaning towards the Z950.
