    Default Buying a point n shoot for a vietnam working trip

    Mmm, friend going to Vietnam for six months working trip.
    Not very tech savvy lady but will use camera for documentation
    for her life there. (bringing notebook to transfer file)

    I have shortlisted Sony W5, Panasonic FX8, and Fuji F10
    where

    sony:
    cheapest, (ok slightly cheaper than FX8)
    good battery life,
    fast operation

    Pana:
    slim, best form factor,
    OIS
    cheapest media (SD card)

    Fuji:
    Best pic quality in indoor
    powerful battery
    very fast operation

    Any suggestions

    Fuji F10
    Noise at iso1600 is very good.

    only thing about fuji is the xd card... (btw not sure if the Fuji F10 uses which card)

    still need to get another dedicated reader for the xd card...

    i have the sony W1.... i think the sony W5 is the improved version of the W1....
    it takes good pics and has video with sound as well.....
    start up time is fast and allows for some manual settings....

    only drawback i can see is the expensive memory sticks....
    Hope to learn from everyone here....

    bought a fx8, ok quality, but sucks on low light, will have a lot of noise, even in iso 80..
