    Arrow Recommend: PnS camera with High ISO, manual capability, anti shock?

    Hi all..

    Im in need for PnS camera with the kind of requirements..

    Clear at high ISO ( night shots), can use manual feature;aperture priority;shutter priority too, also with those anti shock kind of technology ?

    Now with pc show coming up, i guess its a good time to buy,. Current budget is $700.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Night shots in what sense? If you mean shots in low light, then the Fuji f31d. If you mean clean images at long exposure, you should only use ISO100 anyway, and in that case most of the sony, nikon and canon cams can do the job.

    What makes you think it's a good time to buy? The most you'll get is more (usually useless) freebies

    So from the looks of it, only F31D is the closest match ? I've seen the picture of it in Fuji forum.. got to agree on its low lighting capability.. nice.

    However, is there any other camera i should consider? more expensive ones?

    your criterias actually ruled out every cams.

    FD31 got no "anti shock" or if I interpret correctly, no stabiliser.

    Yea, stabilsers, vibration reduction, kind of technology..

    Really ah, rule out all cams..

    I guess stabilisers are the least important out of the 3 right ?

    With your budget of $700, i would recommend S6500 - 11x mechanical zoom, good high ISO image quality, better manual control and feels closer to DSLR .... on condition that you dun mind the bulkiness.

    F31 has good high ISO, but manual functionality is limited.
    if u care for something a little bigger, canon G7 also fits the bill.

    Except that the high ISO stinks, as it has with all G-series cams.

    I didn't know there's non-useful el-cheapo storage. Most of the stuff I bought is the el-cheapo type

    I second this.

    if you want small compact camera only F31fd or F40fd matches your requirement.

    If you dont mind a bigger SLR like camera, go for S6500fd which have full Manual control + 28mm wide angle.

    but Both camera mentioned above lack of IS or VR.
