i am a digicam newbie and i've done some research and the cameras that suited my requirements are the pentax s4i,s4 or the casio exilim z4 or the canon powershot s410. Now after reading lots of reviews things haven't become any clearer. So could someone please help me choosing one of these cameras.

While I like Pentax Digital Cameras, I would suggest that you stay away from the S4i, and the S-4. The reviews have not been too great. The sames is true with Casio's Exslim Z4. We own that digital camera, and while it does an adequate job, the digital photos photos, at best, can only be called "good."

Take a look at the HP-R707, selling for around $300 and the Sony W-1, selling for around $350. Both of these digital cameras, are very small and have been reviewed by Jeff right on this website. We own both of these digital cameras, so if you have any questions we will be happy to help.

The Canon 410 is also another good choice. However some feel that the controls are a bit too small on the 410.
