    Default F707,717,828 good for candid and streetshooting ?

    Hi,

    I am deciding whether to get the 707,717 or 828 for candid and streetshoot.

    Are they good for shooting from the waist ?

    Will people realise that you are shooting them when u point the len at them at waist level.

    Is it good for low lite shoot without tripod ?

    Thanks

    feel it's a bit "bulky" and obvious for street shooting.

    I using a 717 and so my comments might be bias. I find it among the most comfortable camera to hold at waist lvl, coz the whole body sivels.

    Only top of that, it's bulkyness is more often a pro then a con for street shoot. You really do not want to take a small camera as people might mistaken you to be taking "voyeger shots" <---not sure how to spell it.

    To add on to that, 717 is among the most professional looking proconsumer cams around and adds to the lvl of reassurace to the subject should he take notice.

    Of course there would be people who says a DSLR with 75-300mm L lens takes better street shots. I not going to dispute that but it's all going to depends on you budget.

    btw if you're interested, here's a series of street shot i took 3 months back with my 717.http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4288782407
    Not very good coz i'm still a newbie myself.

    If you like New Products, New Box, New style, New Version and High Pix. Get F828. If you needed for candid and streetshoot, than get F717. The Best all Time.

    IMHO, I would like to use a DC for street shoot. quiet, small and compact, unassuming definitely.

    PS: Poon, there's no 75-300L.. only 35-300L

    to me it doesnt really matter, not because i have too much money, rather it;s because if i think this camera is good, then i will work towards the camera. performance matters.
    like if 717 is better than 828 i will work towards it or vice versa.
    the 3 cameras i have short listed for my next cam is easily a few hundred dollars the retail price of my current cam.
