    which of these cams would you recommend?

    Criteria for my shopping decission:
    (earlier topics are more important)

    1. sharpness/quality of the image
    2. battery life time
    3. shot delay
    4. Usability

    Any experiences?

    Thanks in advance

  2. I've had an A200 for a little over a year and have been happy with it. The
    one thing I miss is an optical zoom.

    1. sharpness/quality of the image

    Very good.

    2. battery life time

    Very good with AA and LCD off (over 100 pictures)
    Very good with Ni-MH batteries with LCD on (over 100 pictures)
    Poor with AA and LCD on - maybe 10 pictures...

    3. shot delay

    Fair - I'm not comparing to other digital cameras. Delay with LCD display on
    or when using flash can be annoying. It's better with LCD off and no flash
    but there is still a delay. I find it very hard to take action shots... took
    it to Sea World and have lots of pictures of splashes from the whale show
    :). Good news is I didn't have to pay to develop them.

    4. Usability

    Very good. Camera is very easy to use.
