Digital Camera help: Sony DSC-W330 vs Canon PowerShot SD1400IS

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Want to buy a simple point and shoot camera this Thanksgiving. The Sony DSC-W330 is available at Walmart for $119 and the Canon SD1400 IS is available for $149 at Best Buy on Black Friday.

Which one would you buy? I have had a Canon SD400 since 2005 and have had zero problems with it, but it is time to upgrade. How is the Sony in terms of reliability?

    Both are pretty solid choices, I personally like Sony

    but most say that cannon makes better image processors.

    Frankly they seem the same to the average user. If you're

    looking to shoot HD movies with a point and shoot camera

    then go for Cannon, otherwise, it would be good to save $30

    and go with Sony.
