We compared all the other cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory to this camera and we think the Canon PowerShot N100 ($349.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If the memory card type of this compact camera digital camera is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the Sony DSC-WX350 ($228.49) (MicroSD (TransFlash)|MicroSDHC|MicroSDXC|MS Duo|MS Micro (M2)|MS PRO Duo|MS PRO Duo HS|MS Pro-HG Duo|MS XC-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.
