My mother and father-in-law want to get my wife and I a digital camera for our combined birthdays. They've got a Kodak Easyshare DX7630(Link), 6.1MP 3x optical zoom, and they really like the 'quality' of the pictures it takes and features it has with the Easyshare dock. I've never used this camera so I'm a little unsure about it myself, but I can't beat free. I need some suggestions though on if I let them pick one up or get something else that is more worth the money. So far these are the ones I've looked at: Kodak Easyshare DX7630(Link) - $329.99 Store images in 32MB of internal memory or on optional Secure Digital memory cards (memory card not included) Powered by rechargeable EasyShare lithium-ion battery (included with charger) 6.1-megapixel sensor captures enough detail to create photo-quality 14-by-19-inch enlargements Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 3X optical zoom lens 2.2-inch display; movie mode with sound Kodak EasyShare Z730(Link) - $179.88 New continuous shooting and bracketing modes Professional-quality Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 4x optical zoom lens 5.0-megapixel CCD captures enough detail for photo-quality prints up to 13 x 17 inches Kodak Color Science image processing chip 2.2-inch high-resolution indoor/outdoor display Kodak Easyshare Z740(Link) - $268.99 PictBridge compatible; captures QuickTime movies with MPEG4 compression Features a range of shooting modes, from fully automatic to manual Runs on 2 AA-size batteries; accepts SD/MMC memory cards 5.0 MP resolution captures enough detail for photo-quality prints up to 13 x 17 inches 10x Kodak Retinar all-glass optical zoom lens and 1.8-inch indoor/outdoor display Fuji Finepix S9000(Link) - $576.96 High-speed start-up time of only 0.8 second with shutter lag down to 1/100 second Stores images on xD Picture Card, CF card, or Microdrive Dual media; powered by 4 AA-size batteries (4 AA alkaline batteries included) 9-megapixel CCD captures enough detail for photo-quality 17 x 23-inch prints World-class Fujinon 10.7x wide-angle optical zoom lens, equivalent to 28-300mm zoom on a 35mm camera Tilting 1.8-inch LCD display for high and low-angle shooting (Comes with a deal from Amazon to get a Fujifilm 1GB xD-Picture Type M card(Link) for $20 and a $100 mail-in rebate) I think I can swing the extra money for the Fuji if it's worth it. A friend had bought one and I played with it very briefly and thought it was pretty good, but I'm no professional. So does anyone have any suggestions? Any personal experience with any of these cameras? I don't have to stick with Kodak or Fuji for brands so if there's something better please feel free to post. I'm computer literate so I don't need a camera with Playskool features meant for a toddler. I like the simplicity of being able to plug a camera in via USB and it showing up in My Computer, but the Kodak Easyshare Dock is suppose to be pretty handy. Thanks for the help.
