Nikon Coolpix 8400, Olympus C-7070 Wide Zoom
and even the Canon PowerShot G6,

All three cameras are around the same price. I need to purchase one for my fiancee who will probably do a lot of indoor shooting, baby pictures, party pictures etc.

I guess my main dilema is between the Oly and the Nikon..

All good cameras, but my nod would be to the C7070. Very rugged metal body, excellent lens, and the back LCD rotates every which way, even to the front for self portraits with the remote or timer. It's drawback is larger size and weight. If the camera is mainly for indoors, perhaps you don't need a heavy duty like the C7070. Give a look at the C7000. Excellent prints, good optics and much lighter and smaller then the C7070.

Thanks.. actually the C7000 would have been my first choice. I have handled it and it has good pictures. The biggest problem is the xD cards. I have a big collection of CF and SD cards and I dont want to add a new format.

I can understand that, I've been there before. However, I decided that with the big discounts available on memory prices now, the card type became a very secondary consideration.Camera features and performancebecame my first consideration. Between E-Bay, Sam's Club, Best Buy or Circuit City, or just searching on the internet, memory card changes aren't as bad as it seems.

(I can give you a good price on my outdated collection of SmartMedia cards!!)

Does anyone else have any opinions on the Nikon 8400 v Oly 7070. The specs are all very similar. The Nikon is a little slower than the Oly. Please share. Thanks
