    I am almost a stranger to the digital camera world and photography. I received a NIKON COOLPIX S200 as a gift and I have the option to replace it with another item from the same store. So I checked their catalogue and I noticed there are a few other digital cameras around the same price. So I am wondering if It would be better to replace the Nikon Coolpix S200 with any of these below, or should I keep it?

    CANON POWERSHOT A560
    SONY CYBERSHOT DSC W35
    SONY CYBERSHOT DSC W55
    KODAK EASYSHARE V1003
    KODAK EASYSHARE V803
    PANASONIC FX12
    SAMSUNG L830
    SAMSUNG NV3
    CASIO EXILIM Z 8
    FUJIFILM FINEPIX A920

    They are all around the same price... And I really need to know if any of these are better than Nikon Coolpix S200 BEFORE the returning period the store gives me runs out, so it's urgent too. If a kind soul could help me with this I'll really appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would definitely trade in the S200 for a Canon A570. I would choose the 570 because:

    - higher image quality (sharper, less barrel distortion, lower CA colour distortion)

    - optical instead of digital stabilization (big difference when shooting in low light)

    - an optical viewfinder (in bright sun an LCD is useless, holding the camera to your eye is more stable for zoom and low light shots)

    - full manual controls (allows you to learn about photographic technique rather than just point and shoot)
