Thread: Recommend camera slightly above P&S

  1. #1

    Smile Recommend camera slightly above P&S

    Will like to play around with more settings and zoom, not too sure ready to make the leap to a DSLR so considering one step above with buget of around $200+

    Perhaps second hand canon power shot series? any other recommendations most welcome.

    Thanks

    if you want good image quality with a compact size and nice lens and focal length, without a doubt panasonic lx3. if budget is tighter than that, look for the fujifilm f200exr.

    if you want a greater variety of focal lengths.. then go for something like the canon s? is series is good.

    $200+ is possible only if you are willing to get older cameras 2nd hand.

    Something like this is selling for around $300 used if you are up for it. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilms7000/

    With a $200+ budget, you can get a good 2nd hand prosumer camera like the Sony H5, H7 and maybe a H9. You get macro, 12X zoom, Carl Zeiss lens and video capabilities.

    wow tight budget yah. canon tend to have some manual control in their cameras but they have a tendency to exposure only up to 15 seconds.

    lx3 is the king now, followed by the fuji f200.

    but at 200 you might have to get something like a powershot g6, some technicals f2-f3 . 35mm-100+mm equivalent i think.
    i saw people selling some sx100 for as low as 200+ abit, but that one is more for fun i think. 36-360mm i think. i played with the sx110 in the canon shop, very fun, but have to stick to iso100 or 200.
