http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikoncp7900/ Here is the deal... I have a 200$ gift card for amazon and I'm looking for a camera. I'll be adding some money to it. The last camera I had was a nikon 2500 I loved it and still use it with very good results. I know its not much of a point and shoot camera but, it had a very good macro for what it was and took some nice shots. So I'm very partial to nikon. If I bought the 7900 and got half the use I got from my 2500 I'd be more than satisfied. My g/f has a canon a60 I believe.. and I've been less than impressed with it. I know canon is kinda the "in" camera at the moment but I'm still leaning towards the 7900. The SD500 in comparisson costs 100$+ more anyway so its out of my price range. I'll be able to spend 200$, plus my 200$ gift card. This will have to include shipping and all so the ~350$ 7900 would fit the bill perfectly IMO. Here they are side by side http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/compare_post.asp?method=sidebyside&cameras=canon_sd500%2Cnikon_cp7900&show=all Any thoughts before I hit the buy button?
