    Default Help me to decide, Minolta S304 Coolpix 885 or Oly C2040??

    Base on these spec, which one can take better and more beautiful night shot?

    Need expert advice

    Aperture range
    Minolta F3.0 - F3.6
    Coolpix 885 F2.8/F7.6, F4.9/F13.4
    C2040 F1.8 - F10

    minimum shutter
    Minolta S303 4 sec + Bulb (15 sec)
    Coolpix 885 8 sec + Bulb
    C2040 16 sec

    max shutter
    Minolta 1/1000 sec
    Coolpix 885 1/1000 sec
    C2040 1/800 sec


    The DiMAGE S304ís aperture ranges from f/3.0 to f/6.7 at wide-angle, and f/3.6 to f/8 at telephoto. Is it good?

    Simply because it has a very fast lens at f1.8 & if you were to read any of the reviews on this camera, you'd find that there is always mention of its ability to handle low level lighting conditions.

    any comments on S30 and S40, with shutter speed as fast as 1/1500, you can captures very still image in sports events, somemore, camera looks cools.. can be say as a smaller version of G2

    I heard many people recommend C2040, best quality pic for that price.
