eyalg, do you have any idea how the Wx10 compares to the Wx9, other than the obvious lens and button difference? I was considering getting a Wx9 for mainly the video (and it's $190 vs $275)

a friend of mine had a 300HS, and it was unbelievably noisy, even at 100/200. as much as i am a canon guy, the nikon S8100/9100 is a very nice camera (though a bit pricey)

i'm leaning on the dark side now. Nikon P300. I'm planning to keep it longer so the "A/S/M" might do me some good. But, i haven't taken my eyes off of the SD4000 and 300HS. I still have time to think about... So please if anymore comments about these 3 cameras, I'd like to hear them.

No S95 because of the $$$ plus i dont shoot RAW as I don't know how to process them and I dont have a good software to do it.

500HS is touchscreen and dont like it.

S95 comes with canon DPP for processing raw. cost is a different issue, i feel you on that, but the quality of the images that the camera produces is wrth it

I know what you mean. I would go for S95 if my budget allows it. But I can only push up to $300. I'm just a lil higher than a beginner and I think I still have lots to learn before touching RAW files.

I know the 3 cameras I picked are in different categories but if you factor the price....

I guess, what I'm saying is what is the best bang for my buck.

theres a guy selling a like-new S95 for $300 in FS forum..... i am not far from a beginner myself, but once you touch a raw file, you dont go back.

No, sorry - haven't compared them myself.
The WX10 has the faster focusing system, shutter/aperture priority and WB control that the WX9 doesn't.
I personally don't think that justifies the price difference.
Thought you were getting a blue ELPH 100, no?

Regarding the SD4000, ELPH 500, P300 dilemma, I'd go with the P300.
The ELPH 500's touch screen is hard to swallow.
Only if my budget was limited, I'd gladly take the SD4000.
(I have an S90, so it's all hypothetical for me)

Hey Ryan, I'd be curious to see how you like the video on the SD4000...I've had the SD4000 for a year now and I'm going to send it in to Canon for repair since the focus hunts alot even in good light. I just recently bought the 300 and the video on it is amazing...pretty disappointed in Canon considering the 300 is $150 less than the SD4000. Hope your copy works well. Let me know when you get a chance.

I got to play with both SD4000 and ELPH300.

I pick ELPH 300 HS because:
---24mm
---size of the camera
---video (way better than sd4000 especially zoomed lowlight)
---extra shooting modes (for fun stuff)

what I don't like about but can live with it are:
---battery door ( so cheap and can easily break)
---no AV/TV
---controls ( it would be better if it has a wheel like SD4000)

I ordered the ELPH 300 the day after i ordered the SD4000.

So now I'm keeping the ELPH 300 after trying both. Just returned the SD4000

It was a hard decision.

RyanQ, good decision. I played around with the SD4000 at work (Best Buy) and then decided to buy the 300HS. Take a look at my test footage on YouTube (http://youtube.com/for​everg5 (external link)). The quality of the camera is unparalleled by its competitors in the same class just because this guy has the whole package. Full 1080p video, autofocus while recording, 5x zoom while recording, etc. The list goes on! As I said, good choice, dude! :)
