Hi guys! I've been planning on buying a new camera for the summer. I want it to be a fun, simple little thing that makes nice photo's. Not too expensive, just something fun to shoot some photo's with during the holiday. I know what I can expect from a compact camera, so my standards aren't extremely high. I'm currently in doubt between two very different ones. I can get them for around the same price at the moment. My parents have a 6MP Casio camera which is a great little thing. That's why I'm also looking at this one. Canon Powershot A720 IS Detailled specs here Casio Exilim Ex-z1080 Detailled specs here Here's what I've summed up for myself: Canon pro: Canon lens Better zoom & macro Standard AA batteries Image quality seems very good Canon con: Bulky Made of cheap-feeling plastic Casio pro: Made of metal, not plastic Smaller & nicer looking Image quality seems also very good Very fast operation Casio con: Is the lens and sensor as good as the Canon? Uses battery pack instead of AA (expensive) I really don't care about the 10mp vs 8mp. I'll probably put it on 4 or 5 because it's faster, and I'm not planning to do poster prints of me and my drunk idiot buddies. Any of you got experience with both or one of the two? Thanks.
