Thread: Need help in a digital P&S :

  1. #1

    Default Need help in a digital P&S :

    Was asked about a family P&S camera by a friend. Found a few at dpreview but then when I called AP or MS Colour, the models are discontinued. Hope those who have just bought 1 can recommend. Budget is important (<$600)

    Needs
    Price : < $600
    Size : Compact (not ultracompact)
    Wide angle : At least 35mm or wider (film equi)
    Zoom : > 4 times
    MP : 3 and above
    LCD : 1.8" and above

    Wish List (not a must but good to have - if its possible !)
    Hotshoe for ext flash
    28mm wide angle
    AA batteries
    Manual Focus, Manual Exposure

    Thanks in advance

    Dun think you can get < $600 camera with
    - Hotshoe for ext flash
    - 28mm wide angle
    unless 2nd hand camera.

    Manual Focus for digital camera is not useful and most of them do not come with manual focus ring. It uses 2 buttons (left and right) to control the manual focus.

    I recommend Canon A520 which is < $600 camera with AA batteries & Manual Exposure.

    Sony having promotion for the W5. $599 with 256 MS free. Seems reasonable and within budget.

    Any comments compared to the Canon A95 ? (I *think* the A95 also <$600. Please correct if wrong)
