Actually, they're both PnS cameras... 1st is Fujifilm Finepix501, 2nd is Canon digital IXUS55.
I agree with you... it's difficult to compare like that... Depends on what the buyer is looking for...
To use an analogy, Can a ferrari sit 7 people? No, but Honda Stream can... assuming you can afford just one car, would you buy a ferrari or a stream? Think about it, not so clear cut... depends on buyer, and more importantly, his needs.
