    My wife is having a baby very very soon and I need to buy a new digital camera to capture this special event. The two cameras I am looking at are:

    Canon Powershot A95, 5mp, Price £177.42 inc VAT
    Nikon CoolPix 5600, 5mp, Price £144.52 inc VAT

    Both seem to get good reviews in the press and forums, so you have any experience of these cameras, or if you’re a digicam pro I would appreciate your advice and comments.

    Which one would you buy!!!!

    Prices have been taken from eBuyer.com.

    Thanks in advance.

    The Canon has the fold out LCD - which might be handy for those "me and the baby" shots!

    Alan thanks for taking the time to reply

    I have considered the both Cameras and I have concluded that the Canon offers greater manual functions/flexibility at a great price. Argos are still selling the A85 for £160+ (on sale) :thumbsdow . I purchased the A95 at ebuyer for £150.99 :smashin: .

    For anyone else considering these cameras I found this comparison listing useful…

    Excluding VAT? I've just had a look on ebuyer and its saying £168.88 (excl.) / £198.44 (incl.) with stock overdue. Looks like I've missed a bargin. Amazon were selling the same camera for £175 a couple of weeks ago but thats also gone up to £193 (ish).

    Is the camera being replaced anytime soon? I know they've introduced two new models (A510 and A520) to replace the A85 and A75 or something...
