I'm contemplating buying a digital camera. I would say "a new digital camera", but it's been so long since I bought my first one (and a while since I lost it, too), that it feels like the first time.

After contemplation (and one rave review from a co-worker), I am eyeing the Canon Powershot SD 700 IS. After research on dpreview.com, I feel torn between it and the Fuji Finepix F30. Almost entirely because of dpreview's comparison pictures, and the Fuji's notably low-noise high ISO results. I'm still leaning towards the Canon, since I like having more optical zoom, the capabilities in macro mode seem to be better, and IS sounds lovely for a shaky-handed person like myself who often likes to take pictures through the windows of moving vehicles.

At this point, I'm seeking personal experiences with either camera that might inform my decision. Anyone? If you have some other model you must recommend over both of those, I'm open to hearing about it. Know that my level of photogeekery is very low, and simple and small are two of my biggest considerations. Use of SD is good (which is a strike against the Fuji).
