i own a dimage A200, but i want to buy a compact for the weekends.
i was searching and liked the sony W30 and sony s600
the problem is that i have 2 128mb SD memory cards and the sony uses MS, so i thought on the canon A series.
anyone owns a S600 and can tell me if it's a good choice?
sony or canon?
sony are smaller and i need a small camera, but is the quallity as good as canon?
price range: 250€ max

and sorry the bad english :|

The S600 has a lot going for it as well. Wide angle capability is useful for a general purpose camera. It isn't a great wide angle but might get groups in limited quarters or get scenery without having to shoot a panorama. The strong flash is also a plus.

I personally prefer proprietary batteries but NiMH have their advantages as well. Make sure to include the price of batteries and a charger with the S600.

my doubt about the sony s600 is the low price (170€)
style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"could that mean that the camera is not as good as a canon A530 for example?
style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"the problem with canon is the size. i think they are to big (except ixus series)

If you want to put the canon equivalent to the dsc-600 then I would definetely say choose the Canon A530. It's a better camera than the Sony version, and you wouldn't have to buy memory sticks.

Kalel33 - I'm leaning towards buyingthe Canon A530. (I have a DSLR but want a compact camera thatI can carry with me all the time.) What do you like about the A530?

I'm looking for one that does very well with indoor flash photos as well as outdoor shots. (One year old granddaughter!)

Thanks so much to everyonefor your insights!
