Samsung Digimax V4 or Nikon Coolpix 4300 - Photography

Hello, just after some advice. Im after getting a new digital camera and am thinking of either the Digimax V4 or Coolpix 4300. Anyone any thought of which is the better one. A couple of worries onthe Coolpix is the lack of auto focus in dim light situations, is this really a big problem? Plus the lack of a microphone makes me want the V4 more. Any help would be appreciated P.S. Should I forget about these and wait for the Kodak 6440? Thanks Lee...

    Hello, just after some advice. Im after getting a new digital camera
    and am thinking of either the Digimax V4 or Coolpix 4300. Anyone any
    thought of which is the better one. A couple of worries onthe Coolpix
    is the lack of auto focus in dim light situations, is this really a
    big problem? Plus the lack of a microphone makes me want the V4 more.

    Any help would be appreciated

    P.S. Should I forget about these and wait for the Kodak 6440?

    While I can't comment on the Samsung I can on the 4300. I've had mine
    for 2 months. I love it! I haven't run into to much trouble the Auto
    Focus.
    Battery life isn't the best but still not bad. I carry an extra, they
    are very small. Here is a link to my photos. Comments are welcome but
    I know I stink already = )

    I've uploaded a few samples to the following address:
    http://www.icdphotos.com/public/detail.html?c_album=338401

    S1, S2 and S3 are at 2272 x 1704 resolution on the Super Fine jpg setting
    and are straight out of the camera. S3 was taken using the Vivid colour
    setting. S4, S5 and S6 are at 2272 x 1704 resolution on the Fine jpg setting
    and have been enhanced using Auto Levels and Auto Colour Correction in
    Photoshop Elements 2.
