Which CERT to get

Hello List, 
   I would like to get some opinions on which cert would be better to get.  I know this has been discussed a bit here 
on the list, but I have a couple specific certs I mind.  I was wanting to know which would be the better one to pursue, 
the CISSP or the
SSCP?  Both are from ISC2.  I am presently trying to get into the security field and have been told the CISSP would be 
the best one to get, but it seems to be a bit more managerially focused.  I'm not really trying to be a Security 
manger.  I would like
to have the more technical skills.  Is the SSCP more technical or is it similar to the CISSP?  Any opinions and advice 
would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.  

Thank You,
