    Default Which compact digital cameras are widest?

    Would like to know which compact digital cameras would be suitable for shooting wide such as home interiors. Basically anybody know which cameras are wide enough for such purposes?

    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    Nikon 8400. not sure it is useful for interior design photography as consumer camera is prone to distortion.

    May be you can check out at dpreview, usually they do test out for lens distortion. There is also an older 5mp version of the CP 8400, not sure if it is CP5400.

    Nothing comes close to the 8400 for wide angle, better still attach the wide adaptor and get a 18mm super wide. Previous wide model is the 5000 which goes down to a 28mm equivalent.

    Features: Nikon 8400 vs Ricoh R1V vs Nikon 5400

    The Ricoh manages to pack the most range in a much smaller body. I've touched the R1V at the shops and it's really very small yet the metal body feels very durable. Can't comment on the image quality though.

    Nikon 8400 is the best.

    consumer digicams r different lah. manufacturers just produce their own stuff, to their own standard. 35mm crop factor doesn't come into play. their sensor r very small & the lens has very short focal length (eg. 7.2mm). this will give them an equivalent of maybe 38mm focal length (corresponding to 35mm film FOV).

    Hi All,

    I have been using the Nikon 8400 for almost 4 months already. IT IS A GREAT camera! Good quality built & comfortable feel, not forgetting the SUPER WIDE LENS. Cannot go wrong with this camera. IMHO, this is the BEST PROSUMER CAMERA you can get in the market at this moment . . .

    great! thanks for the advice and comments everyone
    isit true that the written focal length range on the different digicams cannot be compared to each other cos they all got different crop factors?

    Consumer digital cam don't have crop factor but rather the CCD size itself is different. Look for the 35mm equivalent to compare how wide the lens is. Bear in mind the smaller the CCD size with more pixel the noisier it is.
