Any advice will be greatly appreciated. This will be my first digital camera. I will be using it for normal holiday stuff (2 weeks away with the family - 40 or 50 pics), pics for web sites which will be edited in Photoshop and no doubt occasional high res stuff. I've read all the threads about the A70 and am impressed, but also note comments about the S range. I've also noted with interest comments about typical memory requirements and microdrives. So, which 'package'? I could go for the A70 (3,14Mb)+256Mb for £320 (or have 512Mb for an extra £25) or the S45 (4Mp) + 256Mb for £354 or the S50 (5Mpb) + 256Mb for £435 It seems that it may well be worth paying a little more for the S45, to have higher res & a more powerful digital zoom. But it uses proprietary batteries, whereas standard AA's seem a better option. Thanks in advance.
