    Default Need opinion on these 2 cameras

    hi guys...

    wonder what u all think?are they actually about the same?

    is it a matter of aesthetics?

    of course G7 being the prettier one =)

    A640 is more of a low-end model... G7 is more of a prosumer. They have different purposes and target different markets, really.

    If u are asking about specifications, you can look at http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/Canon/.

    Image quality I cant really advise, there is only a review for the prosumer G7. As for A640, I dont tink there will be any reviews for it. Best if u try the cameras out yourself.

    If not, compare the digital conversion eng, lens coating and megapixel?

    Hope this helps.

    G7 & A640 have been replaced by G9 & A650IS recently.

    www.dpreview.com has a full review of the A640, G7, G9, and S5 IS, the last 3 are prosumers:
    A640
    G7
    G9
    S5_IS

    www.dcresource.com also has full reviews of A640, G7, G9 and S5 IS
    A640
    G7
    G9
    S5_IS

    Do a comparison of what the reviewers say about the cameras, go to the shops and try them out and then decide which is the best camera for you.
