Sorry to bore you, but I'm still fixating on the digicam situation (hey, by the time I've made up my mind the prices will fall!) I've been comparing the Sony Cybershot DSC-W1 to the front-runner P200 because it's about $60 cheaper and has the advantage of using AA batteries instead of the proprietary "Infolithium battery" that the P200 uses. Granted, it's oonly 5 megapixels while the P200 is 7, but I don't need all that megapixelage--I never do prints and if I were to print I know 5 megapixels would more than suffice.
But the issue I'm hanging up on is that the P200, amazingly for a sub-compact camera, gets far less red-eye in flash shots. The W1 has terrible red-eye problems because the flash is much closer to the lens. I avoid using flash whenever possible, mostly because I don't like the shadows and hot spots it throws, but wouldn't it be lovely to use flash when you need to and not turn people into demons? Is losing the red-eye worth $60 to me?
