Thread: Need your advice on a compact camera

  1. #1

    Default Need your advice on a compact camera

    Good evening, every one. I have 600 for a compact camera, which one should I go for? Mostly the cam is for casual purposes like baby shooting, family, travelling, ... Really appreciate your kind help!

    Cheers and happy new year!

    Asked again and again and again and again and again and again and again...

    SEARCH before you post. It's in the ClubSnap terms of use. As a member since Sep 2008 with almost 500 posts, you should know this by now!

    But in short: 600 is a good budget, go to the shops and play with the models on display, 600 will get you a good one. All the major brands like Canon, Sony, Panasonic make good point and shoot cameras.

    1) Panasonic GF2 with 14-42mm lens selling at S$599
    2) Nikon V1/J1 when purchase the kit would give you SD 8GB card (not sure the class though), same cheapo cleaning kit, Sirui T005 tripod w/ C10 Ballhead

    Thank you all for your advice, will dig in deeper myself. It is not for me, my friend asks me to help buy one PnS camera, really not very familiar with them.

    a superzoom compact camera (any brand) should meet your needs.
    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    S100 cost $699. Beyond his $600 budget leh.
    Maybe go for a grade lower and settle for S95. I think it can be bought at $549 (Brand New)?

    Both S95 and S100 come with the bright F2.0 lens, which is fantastic in low light shooting.
    The S100 improvements over the S95 are:
    - 5x zoom compared to 3.8x
    - Digic 5 processor instead of Digic 4
    - FHD video recording instead of 720p
    - GPS location tagging (availble on S100)

    Other than the above, both cameras are great little PnS gems.
