Hello all, I am about to purchase a digital camera. I've long been looking at the Digital Rebel for all of the obvious reasons, but decided against it because of the price and lack of portability (not only is the camera huge, but I would need to lug around the proprietary battery charger as well), among other reasons. After looking around some more, I've narrowed my search to three cameras -- the upcoming Canon S1 IS, the Olympus 5060WZ, and the Kodak DX6490. The S1 IS is everything I want in a camera, minus three things: first, it uses EVF instead of an Optical viewfinder. Then, it is only 3 MP, which seems small when considering that it is to be released in the following month. Finally, I need the camera by mid-May -- if this isn't released until April (or May, as Amazon says), I'll end up paying full retail ($500), since it won't have a chance to drop in price. The 5060WZ solves all of those problems, but it has some of its own -- there is no image stabilizer on it (meaning low light would require a tripod), and, more importantly, it uses proprietary batteries. The movie options are not as impressive as the S1 IS. And it does pretty poorly with red-eye. But it has a really innovative histogram feature, which I might use. Plus, it's been out for a little while, and can be found for $435 compared to the $700 retail price tag. The DX6490 is also a nice camera that covers the issues I have with the S1 except the EVF, but again, uses proprietary batteries. And again, it does not have the image stabilizer, which is a feature I would use. It also seems too simple to use, but still has the advanced features I would like. And it is currently going for $389. So my questions are -- how important is MP (3 vs 4 vs 5) -- this will primarily be used to make 4x6 prints, though I will make some 8x10. How horrible/nice is EVF? How horrible/nice are proprietary batteries (I currently have huge stock in NiMH batteries)? Are ultra zooms blurry/would the image stabilizer be worth the extra money? Any experience with the cameras mentioned? I will primarily be taking portrait shots, though this camera will also function as a point-and-shoot camera, as well as taking night shots, and movies if they are decent. Thank you!
