    Default Ixus 860IS vs Lumix FX100

    I am considering a PnS camera and have shortlisted the above 2 model. Would like to hear from fellow clubsnappers on these 2 camera and which is a better choice.

    Open for any other brands and model in this range too.

    Canon 860 - Design and build - ok. Exposures, WB, LCD and Screens consistent. only problem is the slight image softness in corners.


    Pana Fx100 - OIS lens stablisation - fantastic , 'easy-zoom' feature - good, build and design - ok....... only problem is the price...and colour can be a bit drab... the key is LEICA lens....

    suggest you test out both in photographic shop to have a real feel..... features can be comparable but you must LIKE the handling and FEEL of the camera..

    Thanks for the comment.

    Yea before I buy I will test it out. Price is ok as long as it is under the $700 range. I also understand that 860IS has a better night shot.

    Why not consider the Sony H3. Comes with IS & a CZ lens.
    Minolta. Konica Minolta. Sony

    Most features are the same between 860IS and 960IS. The reason I am looking at 860IS is due to the Wide Angel feature which is missing in the 960IS. I think I would rather trade in the titanium body, 12mp & iso 3600 for a 28mm WA.

    i am also keen in getting the canon 860 and also agree that the 28mm 8M pixel is a more preferred choice over the other 12M pixel 3600iso.

    another camera worth considering is fujifilm f50d.

    i realise that buying overseas is cheaper than buying locally, but warranty is the issue. i found that vPOSTUSA is selling the canon 870 (860 equivalent) at 299USD, minus transportation. Tempting...

    Didn't really do much research into fujifilm f50d. How's the features and picture quality?

    12mp = more noise and poorer quality image in general for a small sensor

    titanium body = a mere luxury

    ISO3600 = u can forget about even printing a photo at ISO3600

    bottom line, get the 860IS or fuji F50fd

    these two are my preferences.

    fujifilm f50d is better than canon ixus 860 in terms of image quality according to dpreview.

    but the canon has 28mm wide angle while fujifilm does not have... tough choice... price wise, the fujifilm should be cheaper than the canon.

    things that i look for in a P&S camera

    WA lens
    fast response (half press -> focus -> shoot)
    easy to use
    good flash pictures
    small and light
    low noise at higher ISO

    How much would it cost for VPOST to ship a camera to you though? I've never bought electronics via vpost. Plus also, no warranty leh... even though IS much cheaper.

    Any comments on the following when compared to each other?

    Canon ixus 860
    Lumix DMC-TZ3
    Lumix DMC-FX33

    Thanks!
