Kodak DX7440 or Canon Powershot A75?

I had purchased a Canon Powershot A70 which gave me an E50 error a couple weeks after having it. Then it fell from waist-height to the floor and never came back on. Now I'm looking for a camera (in particular the Powershot A75) to replace it after hearing about the common E18 error. I don't know if the A75 has that error as well though. However there aren't many cameras that rival its feature set. The Kodak DX7440 comes rather close though. Can anyone tell me their experiences with either the Kodak or the Canon A75? I need something that will survive a fall and last me a long time. Basically my perfect camera would be:

1. Around 3.2MP (but not more than 4 MP)
2. Has great video quality WITH sound (preferably not time limited)
3. Optical zoom (at least 3X)
4. Great quality pictures
5. AV to TV output
6. NOT EXPENSIVE
7. Sturdy and can withstand a fall

Is there such a camera out there?? HEEELLPP!

Neither model I read in your post will take a fall and survive. If you tend to drop cameras, stick to cheap film cameras.

A couple weeks and an error would be a warranty issue, so I can't write that it's a big deal. If they truly fielded a few week camera that needed biweekly replacements, they would not be in the business long. Chalk it up to dropsies and move on.
