    Thought I post it here too because I took the time and compared the two in another thread I was arguing about the Canon's S series 'soft' images.

    ya, i've got the c3020, and I love the pics it takes. Although sometimes I complain about how large it is... and yet i'm saving up to buy a canon eos 10D DSLR :naughty:

    it's $1400 now, but the time I have the amount saved that I want, it'll probably be down to $1000 (they are estimating it will be that price by jan/feb, although I'd like to make it a Christmas present to myself...)


    there was a guy at the autocross on sunday with a nikon D100, and he let me play with it. he was going on about how much better it was than the 10D, but I thought it felt like a toy... and most of the further in depth reviews i read yesterday said the nikon had a really soft focus.

    eeek. the rest seem somewhat acceptable, but that brick picture really makes me question my lust for an s230... any idea if the s400 is significantly better?

    i took the s230 to china - cos my mom took my s40 to hawaii.

    granted the pictures arent as good as s40's, i think the s230 does a great job.
