Thread: Fuji 601Z or Canon A70

    Default Fuji 601Z or Canon A70

    Hi,
    I am planning to buy an higher end consumer/lower end prosumer camera.
    Based on my budget, I have decided that I can buy either a Fuji 601 Zoom or a Canon A70.
    Both offer similar features.
    Can anyone tell me which is better?
    I know f601 has this interpolated 6MP stuff but i dont really see the use of it.
    Any other major difference?
    Thanks,
    Shastri

    Hmm if get A70 might as well top up a hundred more get Olympus C740..
    cost abt 600++ fr bargaincity
    got 10X zoom which is very useful.
    I'm using an A70 too. Its a great camera except its quite limited in zoom. U may wish to consider it.

    thanks all for the suggessions.
    I bought an F601Z yesterday with two batteries. Well, it is always an arguable issue that which cam is better..
    With A70 I could have got a longet exposure or a better macro than F601Z but i felt F601's compact size and better image resolutions (arguable again-i dont belive in 6MP but dpreview says it compares to about 4MP) more than compensate for that.
    Anyway, hope to come up with a decent gallery soon.
    thanks all again.

    Guess you have quite some expectations out of my eyes and the camera. We have no doubt about the camera. but my eyes... let us see.
    Bell, I still feel bad that I missed your 601 offer by a few minuts.
    Take care all.
