I have nothing against any of those cameras, but I would reccommend looking at canon's as well. The SD*** series are compact, high quality, and competitively priced. I have had an SD100, SD400, and am currently on the SD 700. I stillhave all three and they are all great cameras. I think the SD400/450 is an excellent balance of price/picture quality/size, as it is perfectly sized for a pocket. Picture quality is outstanding.

The Canon SD700 is classified as an ultra-compact camera.

Without actually having used any of the cameras you've mentioned, I know that Samsung does not have a good reputation in the digital camera world. I don't know if this has changed with their new cameras.

What kind of photography are expecting to use the camera for? Indoors with low light, portraits, outdoors, etc?

Samsung cameras generally have poor image quality. Therefore, I think they are not good.



I would prefer either Casio model.
