    Default Sincere help needed please...need to choose best compact camera

    Hi all, i am selecting the best compact camera under $700, i am keen on the nikon p310, by i am wondering if there are any other better cameras out there which can rival the p310? Except the Xz1,s100 and lx5

    I will be buying the camera soon...cheers

    Thank you very very much

    I want a camera that can:
    1. Good Anti-shake
    2. Fast for point and shoot
    3. special effects mode (fish-eye, miniature, and etc)
    4. Good details, can shoot with no loss of details
    5. good picture color
    6. Smaller & lighter then dslr

    the best camera is the one with you. there's no point in getting a camera that's awesome but your skill sucks.

    so if you're looking at the Nikon P310, go for it.

    Sharpness is also important too, i hope to get a s100 similar camera but with faster and more accurate af

    How about the Canon G12? Bigger than the S100 but still smaller than a DSLR.

    What camera models have you shortlisted? Then just read the reviews. Or read the regular compact camera roundups on DPReview.

    Please learn to do your own research first.

    I like the S100. the battery life is so much better than the G series too. so the multi-shot function can be switched on permanently.

    S100 autofocus too slow cannot take random and natural photos

    how you improve, even with a simple PNS camera, is by overcoming the limitations of what you have at your disposal

    Canon S100 has my vote. Every cam has a certain limitation to each needs, just need to learn to overcome it. Gd to train your brain at times...

    I saw a Samsung EX1 go for 499 at Vivo City BEST. Good deal IMO.

    Stretch your budget and get a Canon G1X. It is one of the best PnS camera.
