Hi there follow members,
I am new to this forum and need your kind assistance. Fisrt of all good day people. I am looking at getting a digatal camera in the next few days.
Below are my requirements:
1- below $1500, hopefully around the price of the cannon g3($1200).
2- 4MP and above.
3- The more the merrier.
4- Size does not really matter, just one with features.
5- AA or lithium. (is AA better than lithium?)
6- Just like the size, does not really matter, just one that feel and weigh alright, something not out of the ordinary.
8- I assume its the mucking around of the shutter speed and aperture, right. Than its a YES.
9- Faster is better. Also, the time better shots is pretty important, so that i don't have to wait too long between shots.
10- Just the everyday kinda pics, this camera will sort of replace my SLR. Night shots is a must, with also the ability to capture fast moving objects, like cars. micros coming a close 3rd.
I was actually thinking of getting the cannon G3, but is now having 2nd thoughts. I went down to SLS afew times thinking of getting some advice, but those suckers down there don't seem to be too helpfull.
As i have saved for this coming camera for awhile, i really hope that i will not regret my purchase.
I would appreciate if some kind souls in this kind forum could help me out. A list of other cameras with the likes of nikon, minota, fuji, or actually any other makes that will suit my needs will be great, and/or with also ther pros and cons.
Or should i stick the cannon g3?
Please help and thanks in advance.
