Ok so I know the Casio has more megapixels and manual controls than the SD450, and I can avoid this by getting the Canon SD-550...but it is a little bigger than I want and more expensive. So I am comparing it to the Canon SD450 since it costs about the same and is the same size. I am fearful of the Casio's lens error problems and weak flash, but appreciate the MPs and control. Could anyone give me their opinions on what is the best choice? I am newbie to digital cameras who is looking for a nice point and shoot that fits in my pocket for travel and nights out with friends (this is where the flash plays a role). I appreciate any thoughts. Oh and I know Casion has a EX-Z850 coming out, but that isn't til April...and I need a camera by March. Also, the EX-S500 is out of the ? too.
