Get last years high end model off of craigslist or ebay and forget buying new on cheap cams like these. People use these small cameras so little that when they do go on ebay etc they are essentially brand new anyways. There has essentially been NO image differentiation(improvement) in the pocket snap shot camera arena in the last couple of years as companies are selling far fewer of them due to the vast increase in camera phones. Therefore last years model, is vastly cheaper and essentially no different in terms of image quality. The newer model will have more gee whiz wing wang bang features.
PS. Look at sensor size, 1/2.3 is largest on these multi zoom snap shot cams, and do not buy smaller. Look at lens. Smaller the F-stop generally the better the lens is. Not necessarily true, but generally true. Other than these two diffining bits, all those pocket cams are the same where the only difference pretty much other than waterproof cams, is their software.
