The lightest of the bunch, at just over 12 ounces ready to shoot, this Kodak has pretty heavy capabilities, including image-stabilized movies with stereo sound. With the highest-resolution LCD (as many pixels as the Sony's larger one), viewing and playback are noticeably finer-grained.
Smart: In-camera editing lets you do things like crop or adjust local brightness without firing up the computer.
Fun: Like lots of other Kodak cameras, it fits on the EasyShare Printer Dock for one-touch, no-brainer 4x6s.
