    Default Camera for Easy use in events

    Hi guys~
    I am new here and i have a Qs.
    I have been tasked to find a camera for my workplace's individual dept to use.
    Please note that the users have 0 exp in cameras. So i am looking for a decent camera to use for events.
    So the main use for these cameras are for simple events and functions (may consist of both indoor and outdoor lightings).
    Any camera to into? (Budget below 500)

    With a budget below 500, you are already very limited in your choices. I'm assuming it will need to be brand new? If that's te case, you would need to look at a decent compact camera, like the Sony HX10/20.

    Yes, i will need it brand new as it is for work and not personal use.

    TS, in the end, it all comes down to what kind of quality the management expects from the camera. For a budget like $500, getting a camera that can do some recording shots, like mid range PnS, is no problem. But you can never can good quality well shot images like those shot with a DSLR, good lenses and a flash gun.

    You could consider Pentax K01, this model released about a year ago & quickly discontinue by pentax for whatever reason.
    Since you are low on budget this would be a good buy. go to the camera store to ask for the price.
    and also this camera may not suit you, cos i think it's kind of toy like, & bulky in hands..

    I doubt a company would be happy to buy a discontinued product....

    TS is under budget so i thought of giving him this to consider. Sometimes people buy it because it is cheap,
    no offence intended.

    In that case, any point and shoot will do well. But will the dept heads use it? Especially nowadays most people have such great mobile phones with very decent picture quality.

    get a GoPro Silver Edition. I think less than $450 (saw at Harvey Norman). can shoot video, 11 Megapixel burst at 10fps (i think so?)

    WIFI
    and remote, etc...

    not to mention the main feature of impressive HD video at variable FPS...
