Hello everyone,

I have these 3 cameras available but dont know which to pick. I will mainly shoot bands indoors with low light.

I'm not sold on Kodak, I'll say that much and feel they lack what ya get with with a Canon, Nikon, Oly, etc. Also, something to seriously think about, you will be shooting in low light a lot ya said, and this is an area where P&S digitals just don't do well in, the noise factor is horrible. For the pice of the cams u are looking at, u can step into a used Canon Rebel 300D and save some $ in the process http://cgi.ebay.com/Canon-EOS-Digit...QQihZ016QQcategoryZ107908QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem Do a search for Canon 300D and u will see what I mean. Your images will look a LOT better.

I've specifically picked these cameras because I'm not from America and these are the only cameras I am able to get my hands on in this price range ($350 here). If you had to pick one of those, what would it be?

If you want to get an idea of the kind of photography I'm interesting in doing, look here

Well I would go with the Fuji then, I won't kid ya though, you are gonna have a hard time getting shots like the ones you linked me to on DA, if ya notice he uses a d70. I don't know where ya live but many ebay folks with ship around teh world. I would honestly try looking for a used dslr

Yeah I know i'm not going to get that kind of quality shots, but that is the sort of pictures I want to take. I live in South Africa btw.
