digital camera so much to choose.ARGGGG

Hello i am trying to figure out which digital camera i should buy. i did that search long ago and decided to go for the funky idea of samsung st500.
i can spend 250GBP and my primary concern is to have a really good photo quality.i am using an olumpus mju 1030w and my gf had(stolen) a samsung st500(gift). so i want to buy her a new one with a better image quality. i prefer not to have a touch screen.

That should be easy

You could look at the Canon SX200, Sony HX5, Panasonic TZ7, and the Canon SX210.

thanks for the reply.
i really dislike sony i think it is mostly the name that i pay and not the quality, so sony is out. i was thinking of the panasonic as reviews are saying that it is one of the best cameras but many user's say that the photo quality lets the camera sx200 i dont know...i quite like the sx210 though. so what you suggest between panasonic and the sx210?any other suggestions?

Sx 210 IS

In reply to: re

Based on my research, the Canon sx210 has excellent image quality at that price point. It also has 2 more MP's and a bit better of a zoom than the panasonic, but from the many video's i've watched, I"m not overly impressed with the picture quality of the SX210's video's. If you're going for picture quality, then the canon would be a solid choice. But the panasonic is also a good choice. Different people look for different things in a camera. I'd suggest that you look at as many reviews of both camera's as possible.
