Hi, I am a complete novice when it comes to digital cameras and in the market to urgently purchase one in the next few days and need some advise. However, I am limited to physical brick-n-mortar stores because of time constraints (only a few days) and cash sales only. My target camera is an entry level model with a pricepoint between US$100 to $150. I am fully aware of much better and more expensive cameras, but for the time being that must suffice. In my initial online shopping tour (Wal*Mart, Best Buy, Circuit City, CompUSA etc), I have noticed most of the cameras at these prices are populated mainly by Kodak & HP brand models with the occasional Vivitar or Polaroid. So what I would like to know, is which is the better camera between the equivalent HP and Kodak models? My preference is for higher quality shots (more MPs/detail) vs. higher optical zoom however. OS X support goes without saying, off-course. Thanks!
