I think the the question would like the others. What do you want to shoot? What is your budget? IMHO This kind of question is the most difficult to answer.

my two cents: brand matters heaps. I choose canon. oh it's not one of the choices. ok sigh. I'd choose nikon then.

Good brand comes with good lenses, and lenses make up the integral part of the result u will get.

Brand matters, in this area. A camera is an investment, no matter what level you are at. The ultimate goal is to record what you see. You invest in better equipment, the more assured you are of the (quality of the) recording.

Some moments don't come twice, you get what I mean?

Brands are there for a reason, especially renowed ones.

ok put it this way

CF 128MB = <$50
SD 128MB = ~$50
XD 128MB = ~$100
MS 128MB = ~$80

price XD>MS>SD>CF
so when i buy DC i only buy those using SD or CF

speed
CF and MS Pro should be the fastest in theory ...
but for p&s camera you can ignore this part ......
physical size
XD should be the smallest and CF should be the biggest... but who care man....
memory size
CF theory max is 16GB if i am not wrong
and MS Pro theory max is 2TB
and it is all theory .... now the biggest memory card is CF 12GB(but thats cost you a hyundai martrix)

btw if you want to buy a cam less than 700
Canon A80 is a good choice
visit http://www.fotop.net/latmo my A80 album for sample

I hv the chance to use quite a number of brand of digital camera cos all my friends buy different brand......
I hv used Canon, Fuji, Nikon, Sony, Casio, Olympus and Kodak.
I think Sony pic did not turn out very good.... Casio also......

Olympus, Kodak and Fuji pic quality quite the same .......... Fuji's setting are much easy to understand (best for those who r not technology savvy)....... Kodak and Olympus setting a little more complex den Fuji.......

Canon and Nikon pic are great..... Canon has a lot of function but most ppl will not care abt those function at all unless u r a pro....... Nikon's setting and function also quite similiar to Canon..... but these 2 brand are more ex..... Both are hving promotion now..... so u can get some goodies along wif it.......
