Okay, I am going to get rid of the Kodak P855 because it is too bulky, capture/flash time is too long, focus takes to long, and its a pain to carry around.... Plus something cheaper would be pretty good.
I have narrowed it down between the SD450 and the A610.
Just for some background of what I have been reading:
This seems like a nice camera. Basic features are 5.0 Megapixel, 3X optical zoom, 12X overall zoom, 16MB SD card with movie and sound mode and 2.5" LCD screen. I read reviews and people seem to like it overall. It is compact and takes decent pics it seems but lacks the extra zoom of the A610 and the A610 looks better IMO but I really like the idea of the 2.5" LCD screen

I read reviews and there literally seems to be no one dissapointed with this camera. 5.0 magapixel, 4X optical zoom, 12X overall, 16MB SD card, 2.0" LCD swingout screen and movie sound mode. I like this camera because it has 4X optical zoom as opposed to the 3X in the SD450 and zoom is something I want since I am giving up my Kodak which has 12X optical zoom. I like the look of this camera better, and it is $40 cheaper overall. It seems to be the better camera everything considered, but I am not sure if the SD450 is an overall better camera for durability and picture quality though. I wish this camera had the 2.5" LCD screen, but at least the LCD screen swings out. The one bad thing I read about with this camera was that it feels kinda cheap when holding it and not as solid as the SD450.

I am more leaning towards the A610, but I just wanted to make sure that the SD450 was not a much better camera quality wise first.
