Canon Powershot A410 or Kodak Easyshare C330?

  1. Hi,

    I'm in the market for a simple, while nice looking digicam that
    supports optical zoom.

    I researched a bit on the web and went to some stores. I narrowed down
    my choice to the Canon Powershot A410 and the Kodak Easyshare C330.
    Now, which one to choose?

    Regarding specs, the C330 seems to be ahead since it offers 4MP,
    compared to teh 3.2MP of the A410.
    On the other hand, while both cameras get fairly good reviews (cf. for
    instance:
    http://reviews.cnet.com/Kodak_EasyShare_C330/4505-6501_7-31355774-2.html,
    and:
    http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/canon/powershot_a410-review/index.shtml,
    respectively), I get the impression that Canon-cameras are particularly
    appreciated. Also, the A410 is a bit fresher a model and sports a chip
    which is also used in much more sophisticated models by Canon. And, of
    course, 3.2MP are well enough for point-and-shoot.

    Could the geometry of the camera-body be a factor? I know from my own
    experience with a (different class of camera) Minolta DiMage X, that it
    could be a bit difficult to hold the camera still, if geometry is not
    that balanced. Here, the boxy C330 could gain some extra-points
    compared to quite wide A410 (I'm thinking about one-hand-use).

    Any comments, suggestions, or experiences are highly welcome.

    Thanks in advance!

    Regards,
    Giorgio
