You are comparing 2 quite different cameras there... One has 3x zoom while the other has 10x. One is an ultra compact camera while the other is a dSlr-like.

If you only want to take pics of your familly and friends at events like gathering, then you have no need for 10x zoom and thus the s410 would be more than enough. For making prints, both can get to about 8x10 with quite good quality.

Find what you wnat to do and u will know what to buy
