Hi, I'm about to buy my first digicam and am very undecided.
There are several models (In the same low price range) that I like and after readed some reviews... I'm still confused...
I'm looking for a very compact camera, easy to use, with good image quality and weel built. I'd like the possibility of use AA battery. I don't need of too much advanced features.
These are the cameras:

-Kodak CX7430/7530/7630
-Pentax S50
-Fuji Finepix F455
-Ricoh R1V (Or R2)
-HP R607/R707/R717

Which one do You consider the "best" ?
Are there other models that You suggest to consider ?
Many thanks, Stefano.

Look at the Canon Powershot A95.

The take a far better picutre than a camera at the price has a right to.

Also, lots of manual controls for your exploration.

Later, if you decide to upgrade to a D-SLR, you'll still find yourself using the A95 as a grab and go camera.

It's a really classy, classic camera!

Thanks for the advice.
Unfortunately the A95 is expensive for me and also a little too much "not-compact" respect the other models.
I need a compromise beetwen quality image and compactness. :roll:

The Kodak cameras will give you the best value.

Thanks Sarah

As I'd like a more compact camera, probably I'll choose between Kodak C360 and Kodak V550.
Do You know these cameras ? Do You think are a good choose ?
I also like Hp R717 but I don't know which is the best in terms of compactness and image quality.

thks

Hi Adun, unfortunately in Italy and also in the rest of Europe the Ixus series is much more expensive than Kodak or Fuji cam...

Takeshi,

If thats the case, then the best of Kodak would be the V550 or the Fuji F10. Extremely super cameras in addition to the Canon Ixus/Powershot series!

arvind sachdev..
And what about Fuji F455 ? :O

Do You know this model ?



thks
