The Nikon 4200 and the Canon S410 appear to be very similar. I went with
the Nikon 4200. Why? I liked how it fit in my hand, layout of the
controls, and ease of use. It also takes great pics!
The Nikon uses a SD card instead of Compact flash. Could be nice if you have
other gadgets using SD cards. It also has a 12 meg built in memory that
acts as a buffer or can stor images if you don't have a SD card. Really
nice when trying the camera in the store. Beyond that 12meg doesn't store
Nikon has 640x480 movie mode which is a bit bigger. You can get 30fps if
you move up to the 5200 model.
They are both good cameras.
